Whether it’s a small ‘Portable Single Camera’ (PSC) Doc or corporate job, a large scale multi-camera reality TV job, A full scale commercial or Drama or something more specialist like a music recording, VR / 360 sound capture or extreme conditions recording, kit choices for sound department are important! Below is a list of the core kit that I have as a sound recordist, additional items can be sub-hired for specialist jobs. A few major considerations when hiring sound kit is having sound back-ups, timecode sync and IEM (In Ear Monitors) / wireless headsets.

Sound Back-up / Camera Link
Having sound backed up (recording in more than one place) it is always recommended, this is achieved by having it recorded in the sound bag and on the camera and this can be done using a stereo wireless hop (see below) which is dedicated transmitter in the sound bag going to a dedicated 2 channel receiver mounted and powered from a V-Lock plate on camera. A cheaper option for getting audio onto camera for playback and first edits (but not for final mix) is a mono ‘scratch’ hop.

Timecode Sync
Timecode is a seriously time saving tool for post-production workflow. Having the camera’s TC and sound recorders TC synced means that in post the audio files and video files drop seamlessly together and sync is done for you. TC sync is achieved by using TC lockit boxes that are synced with the sound bag (the master) on TOD (Time Of Day) timecode and then feed the camera with the exact same timecode accurate to within a 1/4 of a single frame over 24 hours. The boxes are very small and self powered and will save much more time in post than they cost to hire per day on set! In addition, both as a backup and to aid cameras without TC sync a ‘timecode clapper board’ or ‘smart slate’ can be hired (see below) which gives a visual readout of the timecode and the age-old traditional ‘sticks’ snapping for the audio/visual sync point.

IEM / Wireless / Client Headsets
IEM or In Ear Monitor receivers are essentially wireless receivers with headphones that can be hired (see below) for listening into the sound mix on set. Several different mixes can be sent out e.g. Just lav mics, or just boom or overall mix. Giving Director, client, producer, script supervisors or anyone else a listen into the audio being captured on set.
