Booming a quiet to loud scene

Recommended Posts

All of the above: gear with fab dyno range, good input limiters, a quick hand on the trim, and a boomist who can see the big ones coming.   This kind of thing happens all the time in docs, you learn to not get ultra close ever and be ready with a quick twist of the wrist to pattern off the big mouth.  If you get rehearsals (what's a "rehearsal"?) then you can plan the 2 mic 2 chan thing.

Careful to not distort the microphone (not so much close when screaming).

Careful trim level to avoid overload the mic preamp.

 

Sonosax SX-ST has the "24" "mode" which is extremely helpful for this type of dialogue in a scene. There is a review from Glen Trew about this workflow on Sonosax mixer, but I can't found it.

 

Good luck

As a note, the Sonosax SX-R4+ also has a more linear +24dB fader curve option (done in software rather than hardware)

Have a listen to "Reservoir Dogs" for dynamic range

I'm sure Dave, Mark and Matthew used both boom and radio mike to get a handle on the task.
