    Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Hi Jeff! I read this article of you because I also worked with a Nagra 4.2L when I started and I loved it. So I started reading these posts here and found this info that, If I got it well, you were the first guy here to use a DAT recorder on a feature film back in 1989. The interesting thing is that here in Brazil we started using DATs to record in the second semester of 1984! There were six soundman - me included - from Rio de Janeiro that came to US in 1984 to shoot FIFA's Official Film of 1994 Soccer World Cup. Before I came I sold my Nagra 4.2 to my assistant in Rio, and arranged with producers to arrive in LA a few days earlier to buy new equipment for this shoot. I went to Location Sound and bought with Jose Gonzales a PSC M4 mixer and a Sony TCD-D10 DAT recorder. My colleagues also bought Sony's DATs, a bigger model, not the TCD-D10 one. I recorded the whole 1994 World Cup with this set up, and when we came back to Rio all of us kept using our super new DATs in docs and features! But I never realized we did this some 4 or 5 years before you did it here! Interesting! Tony Muricy

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    I So you use CS-1 for drama work, Mike? That's exactly something I would do too. I've used Sennheiser's MKH 416 and MKH70 for years until I tried Sankens, and then I switched to CS2 and CS3, so why not have the CS1 or the CS1M for closer work or on low ceilings or small tight places? The small size of the CS-1M makes it very interesting, I think. I'll try it asap, for sure. Thanks Tony

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Chris my main market are fiction and documentaries. For documentaries I am more the happy with my Sanken CS-2. For fiction and sometimes for docs need a smaller mike to use inside cars, on low ceilings locations, etc. As I said, the MKH 50 would be a natural choice, except that I'd like to keep the Sanken "signature". So if this CS-M1 mike sounds alike it's bigger brothers CS-2 and CS-3 I think it could be a good choice for me.

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    I love my Sanken CS2 and CS3e, but many times I need a smaller directional mike. I know MKH 50 is highly praised, but I would like to have a small mike with the Sanken sound, so I'm curious if this one could be a better option than CS-1 mike.

    Recording 160dB?

    I also think it's weird to record interior sounds in such a situation, but anyway I would try the Beyer Dynamic M88TG, great mike! Goes up to 150dB by the specs.

    Venue and L Series

    Hi Guys! Is there any news about Lectrosonics making new receptors blocs for the Venue System in the same concept as the new L series systems? This would be great I believe! Thanks Tony Muricy Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

    On Location Surround Recording Techniques?

    I love to spread wireless lavs around me in a forest - try some 5 or 6 wireless some 10 to 20 meters away from each other, around you, this sounds amazing!

    So, What do we do if we need to submerge to tx underwater? I'm going to shoot a doc about a big waves surfer, in places like Jaws, or Pipeline, and I'm researching how to record the surfist while he rides the waves. I thought about having two aquapacks around a Zaxcom ZFR100 recorder, but for sure they'll be crushed under huge waves, so would they work in such a situation? Thanks

    Any advice on how to kill an echo in a large room?

    I always use lavalier mikes in such situations, togheter with a directional mike - supercardioid or similar, no long interference tube - in a boom pole out of the frame, but closest as possible. The close position of the lavalier in the talent usually "dries" the reverberant sound more than enough, and later in the rerecording sessions you can blend lavaliers and directional mikes tracks and achieve a right balance of direct and reverberant sound. In a very big room it is almost impossible to use enough sound absorbing material to really make a big difference, and usually there's not enough time or production money to really do it well... I almost never use sound absorbing materials to correct reverb times in rooms at all. If you can't use a lavalier at all, negociate with the director and DP close up dialog shots, or have a "sound only" extra take with a close directional mike for the talents. Tony Muricy

    Best Sound Bag for 788?

    I have the Camrade sound bag for my SD 788T, which i find veery bad - it presses all wrong places and plugs in the recorder, and has no space where it should have. Which better sound bag would you suggest for the 788T? Thanks Tony Muricy
