Ty Ford Audio & Video 978-1-60643-676-952495 Overview

Ty Ford's Audio Bootcamp Field Guide dispenses answers to thousands of online questions from videographers about how to capture better sound on video shoots, in the studio, and on location. Readers are initially surprised by how small the book is but find that there are no wasted words and that all of them make sense to the average human; no electronic formulas to memorize, no discussions about wavelengths, calculus, trigonometry, or physics required.

Boom, lav, and handheld mics are discussed. A section on mic patterns and their strengths and weaknesses help you choose which mic is best for a particular shot. The Mixer section explains why a mixer can make your audio sound better and how to connect everything to help you get better production sound rather than spending time in post trying to fix problem audio.

A Q&A chapter takes you through the thought processes required to make good decisions about how to get the best audio you can, regardless of the setup.

The Good Gear Guide is an up to date list of solid location audio gear. The Equipment Rental Guide is a list of qualified professional equipment rental houses in the US, in case you need to rent audio gear you don't have. Heavy-duty plastic covers insure the book will survive in a run bag. Spiral binding allows the book to remain open to the page you want without having to hold it.

The Anti-Panic Checklist on the back cover helps you through those anxious moments when you know something's wrong, but you're not sure where to look. In a companion online video tutorial, Ty Ford demonstrates the differences in ear-worn, lav, supercardioid, and shotgun mics. You hear what the mics sound like as they are being used with an ongoing narrative that explains what you're hearing and which mics work best in different situations.
