Interviews -Just done . .

I've just completed a series of interviews in the blazing sunshine with my Y adaptor XLR and using the Senni ME66 as a directional handheld. Excellent images and audio. Now I appear to be getting some high frquency crackle on the SSSSss in some of the speakers. Why? And how do I guard against it? I've domne the same interviews inside an office and no problem. Same set-up. No crackle on the high SSS or sibilance words - yeah?

Grazie

Do you think the crackle has been recorded or is only happening
with playback. Are you sure you had your camera setup correctly?

"Do you think the crackle has been recorded " No crackling on shoot - outside, not alot of sound out there

" . . is only happening with playback." I'm going with this

"Are you sure you had your camera setup correctly?" Well . . Audio on Auto. Both channels up to high, NO attenuation ON.

How else can I set up the cammie?

Grazie

If you are having sibilance problems, don't be discouraged. It happens to everyone. Different people have this problem in lesser or greater amounts.

There are several good 'De-essers' out there to clean up the audio.

Mike thanks for the reassurance. Yes"ss" - that kinda thing?

"There are several good 'De-essers' out there to clean up the audio. - Well, I do edit in Vegas 4. This has an enormous amount of audio FXs. Much beyond my current skills, but I would guess there are some specific filters I could employ to do this job. On a third and fourth review it appears, as you say, specific to a certain speaking subject. Others were "on the mark". Another thing was that when I played the same rushes on a friend's set up - and he being a vidpro - he didn't know what I complaining about! - Well, I can hear it! Maybe I need to be a bit more "relaxed" about it, and consider if I should further wander into this part of audio distortion, then maybe, and the clip is essential, I could resort to fixing it in Vegas - yeah?

Mike, thanks again for easing my mind,

Grazie

Now Here This……

Just a thought.

While you were doing your exterior shoot, were you in close proximity to some very strong High Voltage DC power lines?

If so, that could do you in.

I always have a walkman radio with me. It's tuned to an AM radio station, so that any interference is audible.
