Sound for the Studio
on Jan 7, 2008 at 9:48:14 pm

Hello,
Ok so those of you who read my last post know what my situation is, but I will say it again. I have a studio with a green screen in it. We will be filming a child on the green screen. There will be two or three cameras running from different angles and will be recording to tape. Now the question is what is the best way to record the audio. I was thinking of setting up a couple stationary booms with mics on them and running them to a Fostex VF160, which will record up to 16 tracks and then I can burn them to a cd and it will burn each track as its own on the cd. So if I record 16 tracks. Then I will have 16 seperate tracks on the cd. Does anyone have any better suggestions as to how I would get the dialog from the child? Thanks

Try a lav through a mixer , the distribute the mixer to the cameras.

With your CD approach how where you going to sync the sound to the video?

Did I miss something :)

we do this kind of thing alot, and usually i use a lavalier or a countryman over the ear thats flesh colored and just record to audacity on my laptop or cubase on my workstation. audacity is free and it works perfect for this kind of stuff. to sync it i use something that also helps is sync the multi cameras when doing multi camera switching in post: a little rig we fixed up very cheap that is an led light that emits a sound when turned on. so the cameras all see the instant the flash comes on and the beep shows up on the waveform and you just line them up on the time line.

Why are you guys wanting to record to separate device when you have tapes in the cameras?

I am just trying to find the best way to record audio, either using a mixer or using the canon xl1?
