  1. I do a lot of work for corporate/training companies and find that even though I might take the time and effort to provide ISO tracks (from a Tascam DR680 or Zoom F8) as well as a two-track mix from an SD552, they almost invariably end up using the camera tracks anyway. In many cases their editors leave the tracks panned wide left and right rather than panning them center! I assume they must be mixing on systems where they do not notice.

  5. Hi all! I have been working for a company producing educational programs for the last several years. I am now back out in the freelance world and wanting to set myself back up for field audio. I have a fair amount of experience from my freelance life prior to going to work for this company, but have a couple of questions for those kind souls who can share some info. So far I have put together the following gear (some purchased from JW Sound members - thanks!): Sennheiser MKH416P48 with Rycote blimp/deadcat Schoeps CMC641 K-tek 102CC Boom pole Sennheiser G3 lav set
