“Sound is 50 percent of this movie-going experience,” says George Lucas, and you will hear why in this session. Award-winning sound designer Tim Archer will introduce new and upcoming location audio recording gear and techniques, with an emphasis on recording extremely loud sounds using high SPL (sound pressure level) microphones and 32-bit float recorders. Experience a high SPL recording of jet engines and other audio highlights on the Tennessee Aquarium’s IMAX sound system and find out how to capture them in the field.

Session organized by the GSCA Innovations Committee for the GSCA 2022 International Conference in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Committee Co-Chairs Michael Daut, Michael Daut Productions; and Christian Fry, CVF Productions. Presenter: Tim Archer, Masters Digital.
