March 5, 2017 Commented good looking drawers, Colin! So true...one needs to have a box of tricks and fixes.
March 5, 2017 Commented So true on this being a deep rabbit hole. For me it all starts with understanding the source recordings, what the quality of the recording and talent delivery are. Am I simply cutting some good material or is half the job bringing this up to my/ the client's standards? Nice methodology, Rene. No wonder Tonebenders is so pleasant to listen to. 🙂
March 1, 2017 Commented I've used that Rode Invisilav before and it makes for a pretty nice holder...however the Rode in my box of extras, doesn't get used much. That holder is similar in some ways to the DPA little holder. The Hide-A-Mic holders aren't really any more bulky that the rubber, foam and vampire clips that are out there. I've used them on interviews, reality and film shoots with great success. Their two flat-ish holders are pretty much invisible under t-shirts, shirt collars and such. I just did the shirt collar trick yesterday on an interview with the CEO of Lyft. A Sanken COS-11 inside and two pieces of medical tape to keep the mic in place and secure the strain relief loop....tada. I looked up the mic that seems to come with that Sony set. If you haven't, put that bulky windscreen off and maybe try building out a moleskin pouch. Do some experiments with a friend or loved one on how you position the mic in the pouch and how well you reduce mic rustling. Creativity and experimentation are kind of the keys to getting something that works for your applications. Also...it's not a slam dunk every time. I had someone in a suit and tie last week...hid a mic under his jacket. All was good until he decided to button the jacket...making it really snug. Every movement he made was scratchy....had to then redress the mic. Don't know if you have access to other microphones, but products like the Countryman B6 and B3 are super handy and tiny. You can put them thru a button hole or under the knot of a tie. Victor- one more thing to put in your kit...clear medical tape. Try that instead of gaffers tape and such.
