Beech 58P Airplane Recording Videos

Beech 58P 2011 Recording

Here are two videos recorded while I was capturing the sound from a 1980 Beechcraft Baron 58P prop plane. The first video is from camera one (Sanken CSS-5 audio) that my wife kindly shot. She also took over 150 photos of the short lived action. The second video is from camera two (Sennheiser MKH-8040ST audio), my somewhat feeble attempt to get video and sound at the same time. I forgot to bring the “Boomcam” gizmo that attaches the Flip HD camera under the microphone so I was holding it in my other hand the best I could.

I will be getting around to a complete blog post detailing the experience. It was very fast paced but totally enjoyable. I got some great sounds for a new library that will be released soon. Enjoy the sights and sounds! -Frank

Airplane Recording Aug 18th 2011 Part-1, Camera 1

Recording the sound of a 1980 fixed wing multi engine Beechcraft Baron 58P propeller plane. This video contains the footage from video camera 1 operated by my wife as I was recording the airplane. The sound is from a Sanken CSS-5 microphone which I had on a boom pole following the airplanes’ movements. I recorded the plane at 24-Bit/96k to a Sound Devices SD-702 that was sync locked to another with a stationary MKH-8040ST microphone rig on a microphone stand.

I only had an hour to record the plane so I had to have a minimal set up that could be moved around the airstrip. This first part in the video series showcases the sights and sounds of engine run-ups, ground taxiing and pass by’s from the CSS-5 perspective.
