Today we have a special guest post by Dave:
As most of you may know, I started yet another masters degree, this time in audio production at the University of Colorado Denver. You've gotten the jist of life back in the Rockies from Jessica's postings, but I'll give you a little taste of what school has been like so far.
No, seriously, last week I recorded gunfire for Transformers 2 and Wolverine.
The above pictures are 1) the school's new $150K Neve console, 2) the field recording setup for the Transformers/Wolverine session, 3) recording the "action" sounds of a variety of big, burly weapons, 4) the 10 microphones we set up to capture the sound from every angle, and 5) catching some of the amazing echos bouncing off the mountains.
This is school? Count me in.
