The Quarterly is available to all; it’s not necessary to be a member to access it.


Highlights of this issue include:

  • Part 2 of Jim Tanenbaum’s guide to working P-Cap and MoCap projects. This second part deals with the recommended practices for recording sound.
  • A recap of the award-winning teams recognized by CAS, BAFTA and the Academy
  • Robert Maxwell’s account of the challenges of working The Walking Dead.
  • And recollections of working with Jim Webb by Andy Rovins and Fred Schultz.

Another great issue.


Many thanks to David and the rest of the staff for putting another issue put to bed. A truly thankless task, but an effort that I hope will document what we do for generations to come (as did the previous iteration of "The International Sound Technician" from the 1950's.).

Thank you all for your kind words. They are much appreciated. I share the credit with Eric Pierce and Richard Lightstone, my co-editors, and with Laurence Abrams who makes graphic illustrations, does the online layout and supplies general advice and assistance.


@ John Gooch

The fader panels used with the Fostex 606 are custom-made. From my correspondence with Chris Munro:


"I used Fostex PD606 recorders for more or less everything. I didn't use a mixer for the whole film but used my own custom made fader panels for the PD606 and another custom made aux box that gives me 3 separate outputs for Director, Producers, Script supervisor, cameras, video assist and boom operators IFBs."

Vin, we do have some of those old publications and here is a glimpse of one.  Take at look at the reprint that appears as the last article in this issue of the Quarterly http://www.695quarterly.com/695QuarterlyPDFs/695-Quarterly-2010-Fall.pdf called "Sound - Then and Now at Warner Bros."  It's a "looking-back-in-time" article, exploring sound production on the Warner lot and comparing how it was done 20 years ago to how it's done today... written in March of 1953!
