Roland CS-10EM binaural microphone tests

I’ve recently bought a set of Roland CS-10EM binaural microphones. Here are a few test recordings. Monitoring is a strange experience; a strange hollow sounding output which is completely unlike the played back recording. As headphones, these units are OK for a quick review but detail is quite poor. As with all binaurals like this, […]

Recording problems using iSequence for the iPad?

I’ve been using iSequence on the iPad to do a bit of tracking and sequencing and it’s a fantastic application – the iPad I’m sure will revolustionse alot of audio produciton work – and had some problems using the built in sound recorder.

Bristol Fighter, Old Warden 2nd August 2009

The sounds the Rolls-Royce Falcon III on this machine makes sounds like the whine of a supercharger when you get downwind of it flying but I think this is […]

My new old gear, AT822 meets H2

I been trying out some of my kit recently and dusted off my old AT822 and paired it up with a Zoom H2. No the best sounding chain of gear but I was struck by how good the AT822 sounds even considering the significant noise it produces when working with the H2 (I’m sure it […]

Second recording of 2 aircraft in a display. The two aircraft are discernible by the note of the engine/propeller, obviously a radial. […]
