Mixers / Recorders
Sound Devices 664 Mixer / Recorder with Timecode, 12 ISO Channels – 2 Mix Channels – 2 Aux Channels
Edirol R44 Compact 4 Channel Recorder – Sample Rate up to: 192kHz which is great for effects recording
Sennheiser MKH416 – Shotgun Microphone for exterior recordings due to its resilience to tough conditions and directionality
Schoeps CMC5u + MK41 – Hypercardioid Microphone for interior recordings due to it’s slightly wider polar pattern
Audio Technica AT871UG Boundary Microphone – Table Mic or good plant mic in cars
4 x DPA D:Screet 4071 + Presence Boost Lav Microphones – Great for underclothes and reducing bass from deeper voices or closer placement to the throat when costume is tricky
3 x Sanken Cos 11D Lav Microphones – used in all sorts of productions from breaking bad to broadcast news, real punch to their sound and great when you’re in a tough loud environment
Wireless Transmitters and Receivers
2 x Lectrosonics SMDB Dual Battery Transmitters - This is great for when you need one transmitter to last a long time (7 hours) continuously, great for documentary stuff or for rigging mics to cars on longer takes.
2 x Lectrosonics SMB Miniature Single Battery Transmitter – This is much easier for hiding on talent and in skimpier costumes
2 x Lectrosonics SRb Dual Channel Receivers – This is a space saver and more advantageous due to the 2 antennas for each transmitter meaning better range and quality.
3 x Sennheiser G3 Receivers – This is very flexible in being used as links to camera or other sources
3 x Sennheiser G3 Transmitters – These are great for also sticking on extra talent when more than 4 people in a scene are speaking
2 x Lectrosonics R1a IFB Receivers – Directors and script love being able to listen in on what’s going on and every nuance of dialogue from an actor’s performance
Ambient Lockit Timecode Box – This lasts well over 20 hours and keeps timecode accurate on camera no matter if they turn off and on or playback, it is always rejamming when needed.
Timecode connection cables - for all major camera manufacturers such as RED, Arri, Sony, Canon, Blackmagic
Mixer cables – Corporate interviews and TV require hard wiring straight into camera with timecode and monitoring for faster turnarounds

When the Editor received the sound files he was amazed at how well the sound was recorded. I look forward to working with Matt again soon!” – Andrew Fawn Producer and Casting Director – Multiple Feature and Short Film Projects
