Odds and Ends – An Artist Notebook
Sept 21, 2015 – Scouted new campus locations for sound profiles. This time, I am looking at the service entrance of different buildings. These locations tend to be more isolated from campus activities. This allow me more freedom to work.
I continue to research field recordings and the kind of equipment required. Essentially, what does a beginner level kit look like and what can one reasonable expect in terms of cost and sound quality. This research is also revealing more information about field recordings for movie work.
With some narration work on the horizon, I have purchased several Shure 440 closed headphones and a pre-amp with four jacks. This will allow up to three narrators to hear their voices and also control their individual volume levels. At the same time, I will be able to monitor the sound as it is recorded.
