Ric is the Master of Sound FX. And I gave him the most over-the-top introduction EVER. (Can you tell what movie it’s from??)

We discussed so much about recording sound effects and audio on-location:

  • Using Multiple mic’s simultaneously
  • Shotgun mic’s, including one of Ric’s favorites, the Rode NTG3
  • Ambience mic’s, including the stereo mic Rode NT4
  • Large diaphragm mic’s including Rode NT2A, NT2000, NT1
  • Blimps
  • Dead cats and wookie condoms
  • Ric’s trusty Fostex FR-2 recorder
  • 24 bit, 96 kHz recording resolution
  • Post-production using Soundforge Pro
  • Editing
  • Normalizing
  • Other software Ric uses, including Vegas and Acid
  • Subtractive EQ
