Audio for video

Anyone have pref's on approaches to mic selection for audio for video? Specifically, a portable rig, some indoor, some outdoor shoots, never more than 2 subjects speaking/appearing at a time, some stuff done at sea (?). I'm thinking a couple of awesome lavaliers, but am wondering if excluding an ove...

I'd go Sony. I have not tried any other in-ear phones, but adore them. I've used the cheap Sony MDR-EX71SLA/B with admiration for awhile (they are remarkably comfortable for extended periods), but have upgraded to the Sony MDR-EX90LP and am in heaven. Not as comfortable, but with 13.5mm drivers I'm ...

The cassette 4-track changed my life when it was introduced. The digital 8-track did the same many years later. I'm stuck for life (or until my ears give out).

Not to change the subject but.... I still can't figure out how to use my Avensons to my advantage. I think it's cause I record primarily in a sonic mess of a room.. low ceilings, wall-to-wall carpeting etc. They just don't seem to be happy as room mics and on most acoustic guitars I'm better off wit...

Yeah, I'd say go and buy a cheap (the $90 range) MXL condenser or pick up an AT2020. A nice step forward and something that will make you feel awesome for a few months (and then spoil and inspire you to start spending big bucks on some awesome condensers....).

Does it have to do reverb and flange/chorus? There are some wonderful flangers that don't do reverb (as well as wonderful reverbs that don't do flanging). What kind of price range are you trying to hit? No, one trick pony gear is fine. I love reverb, love plates, like flange, don't use much else ex...

Need new reverb/flange/chorus

I've upgraded so many aspects of my rig and it's been worth it everytime. Now I need to address my lame outboard reverb/flange/chorus situation. I have three Miniverb/Microverb units and one Lexicon MPX 100 and they just do not sound very good to me anymore (actually the 20 year old Microverb is kin...

I can play... absolutly can decipher that angle of the equation, although could certainly use more help in the 'let's have a talk about what you might consider changing in your attack' department. I know what needs to be said, but don't always know how to say it.

ART TPS II. Budget price, and sounds like it, but it has impedance adjust.

Maybe I should bring my kit to a pro for a set up. Anyone in Westchester that's fair-priced and talented?

Yeah, haha, I attended one rehearsal before the session and his kit seemed perfect. He arrived with a different kit and explained the rehearsal space kit was not his. He also showed up missing hardware parts and with no sticks (and two hours late). I had a kind but direct discussion with him. Thankf...

favorite quick fix drum solutions

OK, the drummer walks in and proclaims he has not played nor tuned nor re-skinned his drums in over a year. Sets them up and they sound like complete crap. I don't know how to tune them (any good resources for learning?), and he does not either. This happened to me last week. I had him use my kick a...
