Remote Possibilities Role Call... Post Your Name, Rank & Specialty Right Here! Condenser Microphones

I'm Philip Perkins, I work in the San Francisco area. I've been a sound man for about 34 years.

I do location recording: dialog etc for film/video (incl features and docs as well as lots of less glamorous work); location music recording, usually in connection with a video shoot of a musical performance, and audio post production for indie features, docs, web stuff and some music.

This seems like a very knowledgeable group of people--I've been lurking here for awhile.

G'day remotesters!

Dan here from sunny Australia (although it's been raining in the north and flooding down south the last week or so, it is usually very pleasant)!

I've been following remote possibilities for a good few months now and nearing the point where i'm up to asking a few curvy questions i haven't been able to find solutions for so i thought i'd get introductions out of the way.

I've been working for a zero-budget community broadcaster for a few years now (mainly spot production, outside broadcast teching, in-studio performance mixes) and do a bit of band recording on the side in my own time. Really a jack of all trades, master of none type thing but i believe i'm starting to find a niche.

Working more live music into our outside broadcasts has been my pet project at the station and my last recording project was tracked all live in a currently underused cinema theatre... all leading me further and further down the path of the remotester.

The tips you guys and gals put up daily has been invaluable. So much so i picked up a book on the topic a while back and found it to be really light on the details that, as many before me have said, is already ingrained knowledge picked up from this forum.

So! If it doesn't annoy everyone too much in the near future i may have some questions on how to do things with no budget and bits of odd kit cobbled together from a few decades of no budget radio.

Nice to meet you all! Have a lovely day!

Dan

Sometimes, when one of my students began to ask a question and started out "This is probably a stupid question but..." I would stop them and say "There are no stupid questions...only stupid people...who ask questions...now what's your question?" That usually gets a smile.

Yep, that is indeed another way to say it;-)

The mindset of this forum is that (almost) anything goes as long as it enriches our minds and helps the community at large.

I truly like the way this forum has developed.

...and, it seems to be getting better everyday.

Hi, everyone! I have no compelling reason to post my info, other than I'm a friendly person. I've refrained until now because this place can get pretty rough (I've been reading this forum for years). Talk about a tough room, it's not quite fit for a gal (like me)! heh

Okay.

My name is Sara. I do location recording only, and strictly small scale, and have for years. I was trained as an audio engineer a long time ago, and any other details will give up my age, which I am not inclined to do !

I live and work in California, south of the San Francisco Bay Area. Recording is a passion, a sideline, and not my income stream. That doesn't mean I am not serious about it.

My gear:

Apple MBP, Mackie Onyx 400F (backup only)
Alesis HD24XR, Korg MR1000 (Bussman modded), HHb CDR-882
AEA TRP, Broadhurst BG-1, Seventh Circle C84 (pair)
Royer SF-12, Beyer MC 930, Naiant X-W, Audix SCX-25A, Cascade Fat Heads (why oh why did I buy them...)
Rack cases, cable boxes, milk crates, fold up hand trucks, snakes, cables, plugs, adaptors, hard drives and caddies, and a car to carry it all around in.

A client list,

A love for the process and the music,

A sense of humor,

And, a day job!

Welcome and I just wanted to say how happy I am that you posted your information on this thread...

I trust more of our female members will introduce themselves in the future.

IMO, I've done my best to make this forum accessible to both men and women!
It's a place (on the Internet) that's safe for everyone even boys and girls, so welcome one welcome all.

Everyone has value in my forum!
It may get a bit rough, but never juvenile.
Folks,don't never forget it!

Hi, Steve! It's nice to meet you, and thank you!

I'm not much of a "poster", but I do read here frequently. If I have questions, I'll ask, but I'm not much of one for banter. That makes me a target, and I get enough of that in 3D.

That said, I love the expertise and the information presented by you and others on this Forum.

Thank you again!

Hello everyone,

I posted for the first time the other day and decided it was rude of me not to introduce myself first. Please accept this retroactive introduction.

My name is Tomas, I work as a freelance engineer in the Salt Lake City area doing concerts & corporate events.

Specialty is acoustic music by default as I just seem to land those gigs more than others. My location rec. rig gets a work out now and then but not as much as I hope it will in the future. It consists of an HD24XR with BG pres and a Black Lion Sig003r with PT9 and Aphex pres as a back up unit.
And of course there's the splitters, van, the cables & snakes, the wonderful wonderful mics and stands, the road cases and bags, the road kit with testers and adapters, and everything else that makes the world go round.

I have to say I absolutely love this forum and the general spirit of the community with its collegial attitude and support for even the most inexperienced wisdom seeker. Thanks to everyone that makes this place the wonderful place that it is!

Name: "Uncle" Don Leaman

Speciality: Do I really have one in music? Probably technology in general - mostly outside the musical realms....

Gear (Location): 2010 Macbook Pro 17" 8GB/500GB/eSATA, Focusrite Saffire Pro40(x2), Focusrite OctoPre MkII(x2), 32ch passive splitter snake(15'x30'), RackRider power conditioner, various cases, bags, mics, stands, etc.

Gear (Mix): Mac Pro Quad Core, 16GB RAM, Logic, FaderPort, US-2400, Axiom49, 28" LED Widescreen(x2), Macbook Pro (above) for Logic Node

General: Guys, I just do this for fun - it's been a dream of mine for decades to have a 'viable' mobile recording rig, where I can record (for free) artists who appeal to me musically. I like anything from classical to jazz to Zappa (my musical icon). If I'm lucky, I'll record 3 shows a year - mostly the mixing takes up what little "spare" time I have outside my day job and my family. This Saturday night will find me in North Olmsted, OH (near my home on the east side of Cleveland) recording "Sugar Magnolia", a Grateful Dead tribute band.

I sure appreciate everything that "happens" here in this forum and on GS in general - you folks are inspirational for me (and others), so thanks. I'll try to lurk less, and contribute more as time goes on. May even put up some 'ruffs' of the upcoming show for mix critique. Cheers from the east suburbs of Cleveland, OH!
