Default Film/Video/Cinema...

...are all pictures and sound running down the same track at the same time."

~David Lynch

Once I grasped this concept from whom I consider to be a master filmmaker, that audio is HALF...50% of your end-work, it pays to pay strict attention to detail in that arena, because you can have the finest looking pictures up on the screen, and if the sound quality sucks, nobody is going to stay with it. But you can have all sorts of weird shet up on the screen, and if the audio quality and quality is really good, people cannot be pried away.

For a mic, I use Audio-Technica at835b if I'm serious. For fucking around I use a cheapo.

Very informative article here:

In the 80's you could order Belden cable in custom colours/patterns. I bought a roll of hot pink cable with a yellow stripe ... so I could "see" who was stealing my mic leads after gigs. Lo and behold .. a few years back I did a gig at the local casino ... all the patch cords in the EQ rack were hot pink with a yellow stripe. I sent them an invoice for $400 and they paid it!

I've got an AKG C414 ... brilliant for everything.

I use an SM57 (because EVERYONE should have an SM57), an Audio Technica AT 2035 which is a lovely warm mic and a Rode NT1-A which has to be one of my all time favourites, lots of bang for the buck there. I also have a cheap lapel mic which is due for replacement some time soon.
