  1. I’m a novice......but......I have a question. I need to record my voice while I drive my car. I will be narrating the drive in real time. Pointing out landmarks, naming roads, and things of that nature as I drive. Video is not something that will be in vehicle so a mic can be mounted anywhere as long as it doesn’t interfere with driving. The goal would be to get the best possible voice audio into a recorder such as a Sound Devices MixPre-3 II while keeping road noise to a minimum. I need to get recommendations on what type of microphone to use. Shotgun, lav, etc. I can mount it anywhere but a
  2. Hello all - for some time, I've been trying to get a quick setup car rig working and sounding right, for those times when I want to use my MKH50 or 8040 for car dialogue (either standalone or to supplement lavs in the visors). The lavs in visors work fine enough, although I'm not fussy on the sound reflecting back from the glass. And we all know that the challenge of putting a mic lower in the car is battling more road noise and bumps. Clamps or suction cups, for me anyways, are always a bit hit or miss...they may be in the way of a camera in the passenger seat, or they transmit ro
  3. I record a lot of car exhaust, using a 744t with SM58 mics. Usually this combo works really well (at least I think it does, you can see a sample at https://youtu.be/ALQn0eTXttA), but sometimes the exhaust I'm recording has a huge bottom end AND a lot of high frequency sound as well. Since the SM58's seem to be optimized for mid-frequencies, I just can't get a full-bodied sound in those cases. Can you please recommend other mic choices that give me a wider range of recording capability, but can record really LOUD sound sources like the SM58's can? Obviously I'm not a trained sound pro, so pleas
  4. Hello! So I have a project starting up that is around 70% car interiors. My standard setup for car interiors has been planting cardioids on consoles using some FlexiMounts, wires on talent, and some safeties up in the sun visors. I was wondering if anyone has tried any other techniques for car interiors with any success? It would be nice to audition some new setups on the project and see how they work!
  5. Hey everyone! I'll soon be working on a promo for a major car manufacturer and have been asked to record the sound of an engine as the car goes 0-60mph. I've only ever done this on a narrative shoot where the camera perspective was inside the car, but this time we need the perspective of a follow car (without getting too much of the follow car's engine of course) I'm allowed to be in either the picture car or the follow car and we can also see the microphones if necessary, but the clients would also like an option where the mics are hidden. Another mixer mentioned taping a lav und
  6. Hi everyone, I am the developer of an indie Racing Game and i would be very happy to collaborate with someone that have skills or experience in recording sounds for games. Me and a friend started working on that project about 2 years ago and we do that on our free time. That is why the progress are kind of slow but we try our best to work on it little by little. Here is the link to our project : http://www.redline-e.com/ You can download the game for PC and MAC at the moment. But later we plan to make an Android and iOS version as well. I am a big car enthusiast myself,
