  7. Cuban Sonic Spying?

    In 1982 I transferred the rushes of a feature that I had recorded. The small monitor speaker I used was fed by a low grade amplifier. I found that after about one hour of transferring I needed to get some fresh are and get away from what I was doing as I was very fatigued! Some time later the owner of the facility told me that the amplifier had been found to have a parasitic high frequency oscillation that was causing my hearing problem! Enough said. mike

  11. Best mic for specific location

    Recording anyone in a highly reverberant location is best done with a lav if you are after the cleanest voice result. I you want to display the acoustic then a boom will give you more of that. mike
