Matt: …and in terms of I’ve had a question about gathering impulse responses again just to kind of get a feel for that again, the reverb aspect or say if you’re then trying to drop in something else that you’ve done say in studio, Is that as I quite common?
Rob: You know I did that on Noah. On the movie Noah, we did a lot of nature reporting for Noah and I asked what else I could get the sound designer. He said to me as you know what like everybody has in clean interior impulse responses but there’s like almost no exterior responses.
So what he asked me to do was to go through and every location we’ve recorded outside record the impulse responses. So we brought a speaker with us like a big speaker, a big JBL, plugged it in had 100 foot power cable and then we used a pass game recorder to playback the tones the impulse tones into the speaker and then as our mics were already set up for sound effects recording. So some of them were on mic, some of them were off mic, pointed at different reflections on the mountains and in the terrains that were reporting now. I didn’t use them personally but so I have no idea honestly how it turned out because you know we just did the reporting.
