Recording Sound Effects

Tuesday 11 September, 3.30pm - 4.30pm


John will take you through the basics of his effects gathering process, microphone techniques and equipment choices and he'll share some of the tips, tricks and pitfalls of location recording. Oh, and there may well be freebies...

John Leonard started recording his own sound effects in 1972, having grown tired of the BBC sound effects records in general and Merton College clock in particular, although he seems to be in minority with regard to that one. Over the past forty years, he has continued to record wherever and whenever he can and his equipment set-up has grown and changed steadily in that time, from reel-to-reel, through cassette, DAT, computer interface and finally to specialist recorders . Alongside his work as a theatre and exhibition sound designer, he has supplied effects to many other practitioners in theatre, film and television and his effects libraries are much sought after. Charles Maynes, one of the most respected effects recordists in the film world wrote of John's 'Voice Of Poseidon' Sea & Water Effects library "Absolutely awesome - fantastic work all round."
