A good mic for Screaming and yelling?Howdy Gents, I've been doing a fair amount of horror films and I always have distortion issues with my CMIT5u when anyone screams (especially women), or even yells too loud. I normally back off the gain and move the mic away to handle it but this changes proximity, and in post, there's a noticeable difference. I've been renting a MKH60 with a -10pad to better handle these situations but it occurred to me that you all have had to deal with this situation at one time or another. So I was wondering what your solution is/was for capturing clean scream sounds? I'd prefer the mic to be up close to my subjects when I do this of course to get a more consistent result to send to post. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, John (jgbsound)
Urgent - help with scratchy fadersHello everyone, I'm in a bit of a tough situation. I'm on a gig in Mexico City right now and I have a rented mixboard, it's an 8-channel Soundcraft (don't laugh...) and I've got a few scratchy faders that cut out sometimes when moving the fader up and down. Usually, I'd have my technician back at my studio fix it by cleaning it, but I unfortunately don't have that luxury at this exact moment in time. Do you guys know how I can clean these faders to get rid of the scratchiness and drop-outs? I forget if alcohol can't be used at all. Thanks in advance! - Ryan
