Re: My Venue Speeches Recorder Solution - Non Wireless

I've been using the Sony's for about 12 months now - originally designed a plastic mount that clips on to hte mic but I just use a velcro strap now - quick & easy

I only tape it on if I can't get a line out from the Venue or DJ and I always have another recorder near the speaker as a backup

Re: My Venue Speeches Recorder Solution - Non Wireless

Clive,
what settings do you use when you leave the recorder/mic like that? I have the same recorder and mic but I'm not sure what settings are best. I only bought them 2 weeks ago and have only used it at one wedding.

Re: My Venue Speeches Recorder Solution - Non Wireless

I have done similar things few years ago. Last time when I lost it here in 2013, I got trashed by some guy saying I cannot use dictation machine for that purpose.

Re: My Venue Speeches Recorder Solution - Non Wireless

We have tried this method but it doesn't always work out. It's not 100% for us. We have had people take it off, put their hand over it and worst thing is when they don't hold the mic close enough to their mouths. We have found a solution that takes a little more work but is flawless. We mic each speaker with a Sanken Cos-11 and a Tascam DR-10C. The audio sounds more like the quality of the vows at the ceremony, the audio is consistent no matter where they hold the mic etc. We even use Rycote stickies to hide the mic on the ladies dresses but in these pictures we used the clips.

Lady in purple dress has the same setup on her but the mic is hidden!

Now we also don't have to worry about DJ's who won't let us plugin to their system or a cheap audio system that they bring.

I used the Sony ICDUX533B fastened to the mic yesterday and it sounds great - 3 guys and one girl - if It sounds great do it as far as i'm concerned :) As a solo shooter I have little enough time as it is without putting a lav on everyone. I also put white Zoom H1 recorders under each speaker (angled up on little ball heads) in case they decide to ditch the microphone.

Re: My Venue Speeches Recorder Solution - Non Wireless

I've been doing this but with velcro. Works good enough for me. But lav-ing up the speakers is still the most reliable option.

Re: My Venue Speeches Recorder Solution - Non Wireless

What recording settings do you use with the Sony ux533? I mean recording levels etc?

When you do this, where do you put the recorder on the females? It's easy with males, since they almost always have a pocket.

Re: My Venue Speeches Recorder Solution - Non Wireless

I keep finding that the Sony records at a very low level even though I'm recording at the loudest setting. I have all the noise reduction etc turned off. Anyone got any tips on getting the best out of this recorder? The Zoom H1 I have works fine.
