Sound Recording and Microphones – Interview with Willis McBrier

This edition of the Podcasting for is all about recording audio

 

Willis lectures in Creative Media at Belfast Metropolitan College. His career began over 30 years ago at the BBC where he worked as a broadcast and communications engineer. More recently he has been a trainer working with non technical people  such as journalists as a trainer.

 

Our conversation falls into two parts. First it’s about sound itself, ambience, record levels, psychoacoustics.
In the second, we talk microphones and there are some examples of what a podcaster might use.
There are two versions of the interview one runs about 30 minutes, the other closer to 40 minutes.
