Soundbytes Podcast - EP 5 - Field Recording

March 1, 2017

Hello! It's just me this time, Barney, as Derek is over in San Francisco this month for GDC. As I had the opportunity to take this episode, I decided to do something a bit different. This month I took the opportunity to dive into the world of field recording, and explore the area specifically focusing on entry level sound designers looking to invest in their first recorder. I really hope you enjoy the episode, I had a lot of fun making it!
