Shotgun Mic on a Boom

In this episode of Monitor, I discuss recording great audio for video or location sound.
I talk about the different sound elements of dialog, narration,ambience,room tone and effects. I also talk about location recording equipment including the differences between shotgun, lavaliere, stereo condenser and hand held microphones and balanced vs. unbalanced systems. Finally I discuss wired, wireless and second-system sound and time code and how you can use these in your productions.

The Mac Audio Guy website was attacked by a hacker and due to the the code injection attack The Site was de-listed by Google and the site traffic went essentially to zero. This made me do some soul searching as to whether maintaining this site was really providing a valuable service and if it is worth the effort to maintain. I decided to carry on.
I did a rebuild of the entire site and fortunately was re-listed by Google. I am really busy with several video projects and I am in the process of building my video business and launching the Jay Shaffer Video website, but I am dedicated the getting some more content up here on Mac Audio Guy. and I plan to have a new Monitor Podcast out by tomorrow. Thank you for sticking with the site through this rebuilding process, and I hope to continue to bring valuable information to the Mac audio and music community.
