Matt: ..because you’re setting up things at different distances do you have the kind of ratio or kind of formula in terms of let’s say traffic you do 150, 200 feet, 300 feet and you and you set all that up you kind of just getting a general feel from it just from experience?

Rob: I kind of use the rule I just do what sounds good the you know can I get on top of the building or can I go down an alley where there’s no other closed sounds. I’m always you know just my brain is always doing like what is good what is bad and then I’m trying to then stay away from the bad and then focus on the good so if you just problem solving to find the best location and you can access to that location and what other noise is there so you you put in some effort to find the good location and then when you find it you start recording.
So, I wouldn’t say there’s any rules in particular because the world is so there’s so many factors that go into every location here recording that you just have to do the best you can with what’s available. Formula for Sound FX Recording Success.
