I’ve only had the Sennheiser 8040′s for a few days and have been out recording as much as I can to familiarize myself with the microphones. I have been amazed at the quality and low noise of these mics. I will be doing more blog posts with in depth info in the days and weeks ahead. I am just so thrilled with the glass sounds recorded that I wanted to quickly share them. Now I’ve got to go back ...More →
Down my road a few miles located right on the Pend Oreille river is a place called “The Fish Hatchery”. It is run by the State of Idaho Fish and Game Division. I’m fairly certain by what they call it they hatch fish eggs to place into the lakes and rivers around here. I go and record there often during the different seasons. I can get great wave sounds along with flowing water out of pipes, trenches and streams.
Last week ...More →

Yesterday I went out at bought myself a new shotgun. I love my other Remington shotgun but I was feeling I needed to spice things up a bit and get something new.

Today I took a break from the usual sound editing routine ...More →

A few days ago I hit my old Sony 27 inch tube television set with a sledgehammer. (yeah, it was fun!) It had been sitting around for years after being retired for a new widescreen LCD TV. I bought this TV back in 1995 after many nights watching a battered up 14 inch TV. OK, history over…. Now the fun stuff. I moved the really heavy TV down to my foley recording area outside and on the way it got ...More →
It’s been about 12 years since I recorded a train. When I lived in Seattle I was able to get some great recordings of all kinds of trains in many environments. When I moved to Idaho in 1997 I soon realized that trains were everywhere. North Idaho is the main Northern route from East to West. 60+ trains a day pass through here so there is always a chance to get recordings year round. I recorded many trains back in ...More →
