For what I hope is the final session for Ultimate Fire SFX I recorded some old fashioned torches. I had a minor goofball moment when the top of the first torch flew off and hit the side of the garage. All is well and I got some fantastic flame whooshes.
To contruct these torches I gathered together a broom stick shaft, rake handle, old towels, wire and kerosene. I made 3 sizes: small, medium and large. I will have a more in depth article for the making of Ultimate Fire SFX which will be released next month. Stay tuned.
Recording set-up: Sound Devices 702 and Sanken CSS-5 at 24Bit/96kHz.
