Location Recording Practices: A Tutorial (with Emphasis Toward Broadcast Sessions)

Preparations for a location recording session -- whether for the purpose of making a reference tape or a live broadcast -- involve a multitude of minutiae in addition to the major details of the event. Often these tend to be overlooked or given less than sufficient attention, resulting in added hectivity both on site and later during post-production. This paper will focus on several of these aspects: scheduling, pre-production planning, paperwork, equipment calibration, on-site activities, broadcast format requirements, equipment inventory etc. It is not intended to present a how to methodology for the recording session, as this is the subject of many more extensive volumes -- some of which are listed in the recomended reading. Rather, it offers some basic guidelines for completing the event with a minimum of unexpected difficulties.
