Jay Leno's Garage Audio

Hi guys,

As huge car nut and also a audio post professional I'm loving the videos Jay Leno is doing of his car collection. But the audio quality is really bad. Radio mic RF dropping out all the time and Distortion, wind issues.... Its such a pity because they really are fantastic clips. Its done low budget abd the filming looks fine, just the audio is not good

However its still worth watching

Jay Leno's Garage - YouTube

Jay if you read this PLEASE get a professional audio field guy to run the audio.

Pat, if they're your clients, you could always tell them to hire better location sound mixers. Trust me: Jay can afford it.

Sounds like the location guys weren't using Letrosonic wireless gear?

I've started playing around a little with wireless gear, a lot can go wrong, if you don't spend time setting it up properly.
Or not using the right tools for the job?

I'm not in to cars, but I just watched 10 videos from the series. Pretty cool. Most of the audio sounds fine, but yeah, there were some issues in that original link, for sure. Heard much worse though.

There are other brand radios that are professionally used. Doesn't HAVE to be lectros. Good location sound comes from competency and care, then gear

I'm told the range is superior? Maybe something from zaxcom is as good?
What else is out there?

Ive learned the hard way with radio, you need to scan for clean air first.
