1. Sound Devices 702 Review


    from Anjinsan_Playful_Videos Added 315 3 5

    Please pardon the crudeness of this video. I did this in one take on a Saturday night after a long week. As life is moving incredibly quickly these days, I figured that a quick-and-dirty review would be better than no review at all. I hope this basic review of a Sound Devices unit helps anyone out there who is considering buying one. More than likely, I will add the 302 or 552 mixer to this set-up down the road. When buying equipment, I prefer to add it one piece at a time in order to fully learn the ins-and-outs of each piece of gear. If you are looking for high quality audio recording for your videos, I would highly recommend the Sound Devices products ... but take a listen for yourself. Cheers!

              • Audio comparisons - Sony PCM-D50


                from B Unis Added 839 1 2

                With the aim to have something to improve field recordings when I'm usually a crew of one, sometimes able to scare up a civilian to push the record button when I'm lucky, I got a Sony PCM-D50, the economy version of the PCM-D1. In brief, this was a 3-stage comparison, starting for reference purposes with the on-camera audio from my Canon XL H1 @ 0:01 -- maybe not the fairest comparison, since as on-cam audio goes, the XL H1 usually is not half bad, aside from a nasty tendency to pick up ever physical bump that unseats the mic in its (stock) mount. That and the drawbacks of being at a greater than ideal distance from the band. Second run @ 1:28 has the raw 44.1KHz, 24-bit, uncompressed wav that was simultaneously recorded from the PCM-D50 with a windscreen and tripod support, using the on-board condensor mics only. The location of the PCM-D50 was next to the stands, on the 50-yard line, pointed mostly directly at the percussion pit and the band as a whole. The recorder was approximately 15 yards from the line of the pit. (The camera was tripod-mounted on top of the announcer's stand, with several sometimes talkative members of the Monroe staff present), and also fairly close to the 50-yard line. The third example @ 2:57 has a slightly sweetened version relying for source solely on the 2nd (PCM-D50) track, with added (mild) noise filtering and 3:1 compression from a -15 dB threshhold.

                • Zoom H4 Wind Test with Homemade Dead Cat Windscreen


                  from Crosby! Added 9,827 72 41

                  This is a test of my first attempt at making my own dead cat (some people call them "fuzzies" "rodents" "fluffies" and other things) for my Zoom H4 from faux fur from a fabric store. Commercial units are pretty expensive ($30-170+) for what they are. For $8 I bought two yards of faux fur, enough to make 40+ of the things. I redid this adding video and my voice rather than just the fan noise and stills from the original video. I think the homemade dead cat worked surprisingly well. Are the commercial ones better? I have no idea. Photos of the fur and dead cat are on the right, below.
