Sound Mixer Toyota Night Owl

9/21 – 9/21

Record Voice Over on location with a large-diaphragm studio condenser Neumann microphone and captured Foley sound of Toyota engine with a high SPL transducer. The client also requested backup lavs, for this I used DPA lavs through a 100% fully digital Zaxcom system. Since this is becoming more common, I've created a mini portable sound booth that can capture great quality sound in an otherwise hostile sound environment. A typical location is not usually acoustically treated or a sound stage, so I use a very flexible and modular system that can adapt to any situation.
