Sound Recording

This is the gear I have to record audio. I use it mainly to record sound effects and soundscapes.

 

Gear List

 

  • 1x SOUND DEVICES 302, portable field mixer
  • 1x FOSTEX FR-2LE, 2-track portable recorder
  • 1x SENNHEISER MKH-416, shotgun microphone
  • 2x PRIMO EM172, omnidirectional microphones (stereo pair)
  • 2x RODE NT5, cardioid condenser microphones (stereo pair)
  • 1x K-TEK KE-110, boompole
  • 1x Sachtler SN601, audio bag

 

Gear on my Wishlist

 

My current gear has some limitations in certain contexts (particularly some types of films). With that in mind, I plan on getting the following gear next:

 

  • 2x Wireless Lavalier Microphones
  • 1x Supercardioid Condenser Microphone, for indoor dialogues.
