Monitoring Sound on Set: Setup and Listening


One thing missing...

A helpful article with one omission: always record 30" or 1' of wildtrack audio at your location, even if it's what seems to be a quiet room. Wildtrack is just the background ambience of the location with no speech. Then when you get to the edit you have something to play with to cover gaps or sudden changes in background sound. This recently saved the day when recording a drama on location with a mysterious rhythmically humming but inconsistent air con unit. Hope this helps.
