Last week, I was in Okutama, Tokyo capturing streams and waterfalls.
When you hear “Tokyo” perhaps thinking of neon streets, modern technologies, lots of people and even more people, but surprise or not, there are still great nature being nicely protected and Okutama city where fountainhead of Tokyo is the one you can find many camp sites in deep woods.
As far as recordings, I have been collecting streams & waterfalls for some time now for designing and spicing up good sounding waterfalls. When designing nice waterfall in the motion pictures, streams and water surfaces and some rain drips would sometimes needed. Otherwise in sometimes results are just sounds like white noises….
Here are samples.
First 10sec = waterfall+stream, Second 10sec = waterfall only Next seg = 5sec of waterfall+stream, Last seg = 5sec of waterfall only
Gears I used this time were Tascam DR-680 recorder with Line Audio CM3x2 (ortf in rode blimp) in front.
Line Audio CM3 has good natural responsibilities.
I am getting great results with both stereo and mono recording.
Here is inside of Rode blimp
And such a cool down with this water drips while I was on the trail.
Thanks for stay reading japanglish:)
