Sound Equipment, Techniques and Stratagies

Sound Equipment 

For my assignment, I will be using the Zoom Microphone to capture the sound bites required. I have had practice runs with the fostex and other sound equipments. However, strongly feel that the zoom captures the best sound quality. The Zoom microphone has a lot of pros to using it such as:

  • Portable – smaller then some sound equipments
  • long battery life
  • Capability for high quality professional recordings
  • Can record 2 separate sound waves (good for interviews)

As I am in a wheelchair it also has the advantages of me using the Zoom as it can be difficult carrying around equipment.

Techniques and Stratages

To make sure I get the best sound. when conducting the interviews i want to place the microphone closer to the interviewee. This is crucial as the interviewee is the most important person. They may not be able to redo the interview again or in the time frames required. Making sure that the sound is clear and not hitting the highest points on the microphone as this can make the sound rubbish and overloads the microphone. The interviewer can be dubbed back in at a later date if needed. The location needs to be quiet and where people wont disturb. For instance, In the sound studios or a quiet room.
