    Considered by many to be the greatest place on earth, NYC is a bustling marketplace of ideas and culture... but what does Gotham sound like? You bring your headphones and imagination; we'll bring Senal microphones. Together, we'll capture the acoustic character of this metropolis and discover the sound that compels New York.

    Today, we’re beach-bound as we take on the Cyclone at Brooklyn's Coney Island. These roller-coasters, go-karts and water rides are best experienced with headphones. Take a few minutes, relax, and allow yourself to be transported through Senal sound.

    Gear notes: When recording field audio for film or video, you'll typically want to employ a shotgun, DSLR or handheld broadcast microphone and get as close to the source as possible. Need these mics? We've got you covered. For the purpose of creating these unique soundscapes, however, I've used a different approach and added two OLM-2 omni-directional lavalier microphones to the left and right side of my SMH-1000 headphones. Both mics are fed into a portable recorder with each occupying the left or right channel, respectively. With a little ingenuity, I was able to move about these rich spaces while recording an ad hoc binaural experience that doesn't break the bank.
