Beech 58P 2011 Recording

Here are two videos recorded while I was capturing the sound from a 1980 Beechcraft Baron 58P prop airplane. 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 same time. I forgot to bring the “Boomcam” gizmo that attaches the Flip HD camera under the microphone so I was holding it in my other hand the best I could.

I will be getting around to a complete blog post detailing the experience. It was very fast paced but totally enjoyable. I got some great sounds for a new library that will be released soon. Enjoy the sights and sounds! -Frank

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 2010.

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 the late 90’s but they were with a DAT machine and now I wanted to start recording all theses trains at high resolution. So, it begins!
