    Being old, photometrics has always been a general comparison, and a guide. The snags real are to do with, as been said, how light is produced, travels and ‘lands’. Over the years manufacturers have...

    I spoke to to British character actor Brian Blessed about ten years ago while doing a job. He has an amazing voice that is all over tv and radio and movies. I asked him if there was a microphone he...

    Those of us with full mic boxes know that there simply isn't any mix that is perfect for a one mic choice. You are always wondering if X is better? The times I have convinced myself I need X bought...

    Sound man promises are a beauty to experience. DFA knobs and buttons are a requirement. Newer ones try to explain and it ends in an argument. Sager ones nod and thumbs up. My own best was "it's very...

    Not really. Green screen usually means movement and simple stuff like pans and tilts gets very complicated. Locked off shots work, but to run away from the camera takes a very large green screen...

    I’ve probably made more money recording classical music than pop in my career and I’m very comfy and able to record stereo, but it’s for me also a big problem whenever he microphones that recorded it...

    Did you miss the bit at the start where we were talking about his venue - its not got very good acoustics at all for a stereo recording - that's where all the spot mics came from. Long, thin with a...

    Mounds was a typos, it was moulds. I've got proper ones for my ears and these blot out pretty much everything, but the foam ones they come with are actually pretty good. You squidge them up pop them...

    If I had autofocus that knew what part of the frame was the one I was looking at and tracked that, I'd use it all the time. In truth we all would, but until that day comes, it's too blunt or...

    I'm oddly more pleased with this sheer fluke than anything I've really striven for for ages. I've got to stop looking now, because next step will be to work out how on earth the figures make sense. I...

    You can get a really nice recording with a couple of SM57 mics on a tall stand, if the room sounds nice. We shouldn't get too excited about gear if the room is a bit iffy. Two SM57s can thrash a...
