Hi guys, it’s Andre.

It’s my 20th week at the Benztown Studios and this time, I started something really new for me: I tried myself in SFX creation, means recording and editing real nature sounds.

With a a stationary tube microphone made for voices, it’s not that easy task to find ‘real natural sounds’.

In short: Me and a friend were towing everything we could find to record it. Matches, glasses, lighters, almost everything two guys could lift.

Another factor was that our microphone is suited more for voices.

It’s the Rode K2

Is was surprised, that the mic worked for the SFX recording aswell.

Maybe we gonna get a handheld microphone.

What do you suggest?

Do you have any experience in recording natural sound?

What Mic do you use for recording natural sounds?

I would like to hear your thoughts.

Just write an email to blog@benztown.com

Cheers and have a nice weekend.
