Implementation of the Sony PCM-F1/SL-2000 for Low-Cost Field Recording

Document Thumbnail

On-location recording is a requirement of almost every recording engineer at some time in his career, and there are as many methods of approaching the project as there are projects to be done. Among the considerations in planning the session are: 1) The environment for the recording; acoustics, ambient noise, comfort, space and facilities, AC power, transportation, etc.; 2) the logistics; access for setup and working times, continuity of sectional sessions, security of the personnel and equipment, tear-down and load-out; 3) the equipment needed to perform the recording session; the proper microphone complement, mixing console, interface equipment, communications devices for use between the studio and control room areas, monitoring facilities, and, of course, tape recorders and tape stock. It is not the province of this paper to discuss all of these factors, but merely to comment on the practical realizations of using the Sony PCM-F1 recording system as the chosen recording medium.
