  1. Hi, I know microphones are a bit matter of taste, but I would love to hear some suggestions about MS mics, especially for documentary shootings. Don't want to bring too much stuff with me. Basically, it needs to be portable, shotgun but also would be nice if I'm able to record some atmospheres with it on the location which could be very helpful in post. Any experience with Sanken CSS-50?Or maybe Sennheiser 418? (personally, I hate 416) I want to avoid 2 mic combo setup (shotgun and 8), could be too heavy and big to hide it. Thanks in advanced!
  2. Hi, this is my first post in this forum I'm interested in recording some surround ambiences and I was researching the techniques, that I can record with my equipment. Has anyone any experience rigging rsm191 and neumann km140 for a double m/s surround recording. Are there any holes or phase problems?
  3. Hi, Have an MKH 30 here and wanting to pair with my 416 or AT 4053b for M/S. Any caveats or relevant experiences? I understand the ease of pairing with other MKH mics, but thats not financially in the cards right now. Thanks Richard
  4. Hi all, Setting up a M/S system for a film production with a MKH 418 S to a Cooper CS102 and Edirol R4 Pro. Does one need M/S decoding in the Cooper, or is it enough to use the M/S decoding in the R4 Pro for monitoring purposes on location? Thanks Richard
  5. Hi, hope this topic is more than a double from what I already read from other threads... Working on a documentary for the next month, I want "better" sound in many ways. Since today, we use a Sennheiser MKH418 on a boom plugged into a SD702. We only used the mid, when voice was on the important side but mostly used the side signal for enhanced room experience. We already did two feature length films with this setup and liked the handling very much. The sound was always nice, but not breathtaking. We always found the stereo experience to be somewhat limited and "tight". When recording very quite environments I didn't like the noise floor, too. FYI: We use lavs for interviews, too, when needed. I was using a Schoeps CMC6/MK41 combo lately and used them instead the mid signal of the MKH418 in a M/S test setup. I was really impressed with the low noise and much better off axis response. What a difference especially in quite environments! I tested the Sennheiser MKH 8060 lately with a comparable experience in terms of noise and off axis response, but a much narrower/more distorted stereo image of course. Here's what I want now: - MS setup with low noise and "switchable" mid signal (e.g. cardoid indoors, shotgun outddors) - stealthy setup in a small rycote stereo shockmount/windshield - price should stay around 2k... I found some possible setups: - Sennheiser MKH8060/8040 for the mid signal (can buy them used at an attractive price) >> seems to be sensitive to handling/wind noise (MZF8000!) but is small, leigthweight and has a very nice sound, high sensitivity + low noise !! - Schoeps CMC6/MK4 + MK41 for the mid-signal >> silky sound, low noise, small + leightweight, mid sensitivity, no shotgun available, expensive - Ambient Emesser ATE208 as figure 8 >> I have never used this personally, but this seems to be the only small single diaphragm figure 8 beside the expensive Schoeps MK8 - Kortwich 8 as figure 8 >> double diaphragm figure 8, there is zero experience with this mic, kortwich told me that they tried to match the MK8 with a better noisefloor and therefore used a double diaphragm, they developed this as Sennheiser has no figure8 for the MKH8000 series, kortwich will send me one for test purposes Any input welcome, as there seems to be very limited experience in such a specialized tool...

  6. Hey Everyone, It seems like forever since my last blog post but I've finally published the next installment! http://soundrelated.com/a-day-at-the-tibetan-opera/ Here you will find me recording Tibetan Opera in the mountains of McLeod Ganj, home of the Dalai Lama and exiled Tibetan government. As always the recordings are included in the post. I'll bet you haven't heard anything like this before! You may also notice the site has undergone a major facelift, so feel free to have a look around and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
  7. Hey All, Just published my latest blog entry on Sound Related. http://soundrelated.com/the-tharu-pumpkin-man/ This is a recording I made on my last day in Sauraha, Nepal. It features one of the local Tharu villagers singing and playing an odd stringed instrument made from a pumpkin! Very cool. Enjoy! Jo
