Recording a 1980 Beech Baron 58P Airplane Part-1

Beech 58P 2011 Recording 1

Part One: I Am Going To Do This

For two years in a row I’ve been recording the local airplane fly in here in Sandpoint Idaho. This event features many small vintage and modern airplanes on display and flying around during a hot August weekend at the local airport. The first year I attended I had low expectations on what kind of sounds I would ...

Beech 58P Airplane Recording Videos

Beech 58P 2011 Recording

Here are two videos recorded while I was capturing the sound from a 1980 Beechcraft Baron 58P prop plane. The first video is from camera one (Sanken CSS-5 audio) that my wife kindly shot. She also took over 150 photos of the short lived action. The second video is from camera two (Sennheiser MKH-8040ST audio), my somewhat feeble attempt to get video and sound at the ...

Recording a 1928 Stearman C3B Bi-Plane 2011

1928 Stearman C3B Engine Start Boomcam Perspective 2011

Here is a J5 Wright powered 1928 Stearman C3B starting its engine. The video was shot with a Flip HD (3rd Gen) mounted on my Sanken CSS-5 microphone boom pole. This is the complete video with the CSS-5 audio recorded at 24/96. This plane was not flying during the show but at the end of the day I was able to meet the owner and his friends (it ...

Sandpoint Idaho Fly In 2011-08-13

It’s been a year since my last recording session at the Sandpoint Idaho air show and fly in. Last year I focused mainly on engine run-ups and take-offs from the south end of the airfield. This year I decided to hang out at the north end of the runway and get pass by’s and ground taxiing as the planes landed. There were lots of different types of prop airplanes flying around including a 1928 Stearman that was not there in ...

Crazy Stupid Sound Of The Week 2011-08-12

Hummingbird at flower

This week I present a hummingbird. I’m not sure if this qualifies as a Crazy Stupid Sound but this is the first time I’ve been able to record a hummingbird up close. I was going to post about a cool sounding commercial air conditioning unit at a office complex but since this happened yesterday I changed things up a little bit and will bring it on over next week.

During ...

Ultimate High Speed SFX Episode 1

Episode 1 of Ultimate Sound Effect Library recording from the last 3 years. Over 20 minutes of field recording video sped up 500% to 4 1/2 minutes. This episode shows un-cut footage from my many recording sessions of wood, rocks and concrete. I mostly record alone so running around during the session is normal. I’m not amped on caffeine, well maybe I was during some of the sessions.

You had to be there for the normal run-time experience. Time waits for ...

Firewood Gathering Begins

A LONG WINTER?

My sources tell me we might be in for a long winter here in North Idaho so I thought it would be a good idea to start the firewood production process early. The wood needs some time to dry so in the heat of summer you have to get moving.

Over the years I have chopped my share of firewood. I grew up on the East coast ...

Crazy Stupid Sound Of The Week 2011-08-05

This is a new series at The Recordist that showcases a crazy stupid sound recorded while attempting to record serious sounds for my collections. Every week I will try find a sound I captured that is worthy of being called crazy stupid.

This week’s sound is from a session I did at the local Fish Hatchery back in May 2011. Since the lake level was low from the winter I ...

Inside A Pipe Truck Monks

I was out recording with my Sennheiser MKH-416 the other day trying to record a small dribbling stream down behind the house. On the way back up to the house I walked by and old satellite mounting post set in concrete that I had removed years ago. I thought that if I stick the microphone inside the 7 inch steel pipe I might hear something strange. I’ve hit the post before and it makes a standard metal clank so I ...

The Water Barrel

As I was cleaning up the yard after years of Ultimate debris from making all the Ultimate sound effects collections I tried to move a 55 gallon barrel drum that has been sitting around for the last year or so. To my surprise it was half full of water. I assume the water had dripped in from the 3 inch hole on the top over the winter and spring. I found out that as I moved it the water sloshed ...
