Shotgun: Mossberg 590 Recording With Sennheiser 8040ST

A Mossberg 590 12 Gauge Shotgun recorded from 3 positions at 24-Bit 192kHz. 1) Original speed: side, front and rear. two versions each. 2) Played back at half speed: side, front and rear. 3) Played back at quarter speed: side, front and rear.

I quickly edited and mastered them in Pro Tools at 192K with some H-Comp compression, Decapitator and L2 limiting. Oh yeah… I almost forgot to mention Chuck Russom’s “Call It Good” favorite: RenBass.

Below is the 192K file you can download and have fun sith (I hope) Don’t worry, I can shoot anytime here on the ranch. I can always get more if I need them. -Frank
