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.
