The Essential Guide To Recording Weapon Sound Effect With Watson Wu
Asbjoern from A Sound Effect has done it again with another great interview on the A Sound Effect blog. This one is a detailed guide on how to record weapon sound effects.
Watson goes through microphone choice and combinations, his preferred field mixers and recorders, running long mic cables so he can be a long way from the action for safety, tips on monitoring, finding the right locations, as well as an overview of different caliber weapons.
Then he moves onto preparation, safety rules, and file naming protocols.
Finally he looks at some tips for foley sounds, different types of firing, recording formats, software and special tips when recording guns for game sound.
