What are the tasks of a production sound person,
AKA a sound recordist?
Regardless of what city, town, state, country or planet the audio tech (will be referred to as a sound person below) is responsible for mixing audio from hard wire lavaliers or wireless, hand held microphones, boom microphones, phone bridges, through a ENG or EFP mixer (often a mixer/recorder combination) then often passing the clean audio to a camera or external recorder, which is most often digital. The mixer hardware is designed for ENG or EFP audio mixing and often recording is a portable mixer with 2 channels or more. With cameras minus good audio recording ability, such as DSLR or 35mm film cameras the sound person is a critical person for recording sound as DSLR’s have minus audio preamps for signal processing, as film camera only acquire image onto the motion picture film. Film cameras however output time code in modern day so the sound recordist in film production roles can easily sync up the audio with the right audio equipment.
