  1. A question on MS recording for film

    May I ask how you recorded MS for the movie? MS on a boom, stand or the camera? I figured I would record undecoded MS for everything apart from when I did separate ambience recordings.
  2. A question on MS recording for film

    Thank you guys for your replies! I guess I thought of recording some static space on the side mic and getting a usual focused boom sound with the mid. I am glad that some of you replied so quickly that I didn't try it. Today we only shot outside and what I ended up doing was placing the MS combo in a blimp on a stand for the camera perspective (sort of) and boom as usual with a shotgun. That way the MS mics are in an usual array and I can ditch them altogether if it would phase with the shotgun. I am curious how to make the most out of the Emesser. On Sunday we are mainly going to shoot inside and as Audix is my only hyper, the setup will need to look a bit different. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Can you elaborate on this? It is not set in stone yet, but I might end up doing the audio post for this project. I still want to at least cover the basics. If I then have a bit of experimentation that doesn't work out it is not a big deal this time, the director encouraged to experiment and give me creative freedom.
  3. A question on MS recording for film

    Hello all experienced sound recordists! I have an Audix SCX1HC and an Ambient Emesser ATE208 and today will be my first time using them together on a short film. If the camera is moving around a lot I guess I'll piggyback them. However, I am playing with the idea (especially if the camera is in a fixed position) to put the Emesser (sidemic) on a stand from the cameraperspective of L/R and then follow any action with the Audix (mid) from a boom. I have searched long to see if anyone had done such a thing, but I found very little information. I did some initial testing last night and it seemed to sound fine from what I could hear. Is this doable or is there anything to prevent this? Swapped stereoimage/phasing issues etc? Would I be better of piggybacking the emesser on the audix and swing them around?
  4. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I was planning to shoot MS for a film in the beginning of next year. I am quite new to MS (and the Mixpre-6). I am running the fw 1.52, Is there anything that I should be worried about?
  5. DPA Slim or 4060/61?

    Hello everyone! I have a Sennheiser SK2000 and a G3 transmitter. I am debating weather I should get 4060s or 4061 to use with them. If I could also use them for ambient or sfx recording too, that would be great. Which mic would you pick? Would 4060 be too hot for the Sennheiser transmitters with the TX gain turned down, or would that potentially cause any other issues?
