Your Mic and You

CONTENTS OF YOUR PACKET - PLEASE HAVE YOUR STATION SET UP BEFORE REHEARSAL ON FRIDAY, APRIL 2

- Tascam mic and cable in the small black bag. Please note the rounded filter/cap on the end of the microphone - be very, very careful with it so it doesn't pop off - it's essential because it mitigates plosives. Once set up, please be sure that the screw cap on your mic cord is firmly tightened to the mic pack.
- AA batteries. One battery is already in the device. Each recording session will start with a new battery.
- Mini SD cards. One mini-SD card is already in the recorder ready to go. An additional SD card is in the Tascam bag.
- Table-top music stand in the large black bag. See video. If you have something else at home that serves this purpose you don't need to use it.
- Sheet protectors. These are for the pages of your script to be inserted back-to-back into right before we record each scene. Don't put the pages in there before then or it makes note-taking problematic and cumbersome.
- Earbuds. 3.5mm jack for Steph and Roger.
- Baggy of sanitizing wipes. These are provided to wipe down the equipment prior to its retrieval.

THINGS WE LEARNED FROM P.G. ANON and ART & CLASS

- Each time we record, don't do anything until instructed.
- If you are using a solid music stand, it needs to be covered with a towel to mitigate sound bounce.
- Set yourself up in as enclosed a space as possible: really open rooms or facing a window creates sound issues.
- Nothing extraneous should be in your work space when we record.
