Technology ~ Audio/Sound–The Sound Shark, 04/15

Reasons I have honed in on the Sound Shark.

My plan is that the Sound Shark will sit atop a 2nd SOLOSHOT on the Sound Truck that also tracks the tag and captures sound. I’ll feed that sound wirelessly [mixed with other audio] to the SS3 recording the video. It will sit on top of the orange shrouded tripod you see in these pictures.

I’ve done all I can for now–documented with my DSLR.

Slipped the voice over mic to the right so it does not block the laptop screen, added a shelf to the top rack, and added a red LED flashlight. Next, [maybe June] will be a parabolic microphone.

Nice clean sound for adding narration to videos

Since my last update, I have placed a tripod column [outside wrapped in yellow], swapped USB cables [black for clear]. added a boom for the VO Mic, and added the voice over microphone [an AKG P220].  We are on track to have sound by mid-June. Oh! I am using a Rycote Pop Filter. It’s in front of the microphone.

I plan to add a parabolic microphone versus a shotgun microphone. I hope to use a second SS3 to move the parabolic mic in sync with the camera. Then, there will be the matter of getting sound from the truck to the 3.5mm stereo input jack on the SOLOSHOT Cameras.–wirelessly of course.

Stay tuned…

There is little to cheer about today…

Well, another delay; but, we have shipping projections. If they hold, I should have my camera in June. That’s a month later than I had hoped after delays from spring 2016, having ordered January 22, 2016.

They tell us:

These are the dates your order is expected to ship from our warehouse in Southern California.

I’ll continue to work on audio. I’ve made GREAT progress. More on that later…
