Maracaibo, Venezuela (March 27, 2012)—Location sound recordist and audio instructor Xanti Salvador uses Lectrosonics RF equipment as he bounces between continents and jobs.
“My professional life is divided between Europe and South America,” Salvador reports. “In addition to my faculty position at the Facultad Experimental de Artes FEDA-LUZ in Maracaibo, where I teach sound editing and other aspects of audio, I am also active as a location sound recordist for TV and film.”
Salvador’s credits include work on the short format La Casa del Lago; the made-for-television film La Cospiraciun; a documentary titled Cuidadores; and the film, El Cazador De Dragones.
Salvador has a sizeable Lectrosonics equipment arsenal, which includes SMDa, SMQV, LMa, one HM plug-on, and UH400a transmitters. His receivers include two UCR411a’s, an SRa, a UCR110, plus a Venue system stocked with four VRT receiver modules. His setup also includes a Lectrosonics T4 compact IFB transmitter, two R1a IFB receivers, as well as two SNA600 adjustable dipole antennas.
Currently, Salvador is working location sound for a documentary abut permaculture entitled Konuko, which is currently shooting in Venezuela, Spain, Colombia, and Cuba. For this project, Salvador reports using a two-channel setup consisting of his HM plug-on transmitter, two SMDa super miniature transmitters, and his SRa two-channel slot-mount Digital Hybrid Wireless diversity receiver-a system comprised of the smallest and lightest pieces of his Lectrosonics equipment.
He summarizes, “No matter where I happen to be working, I know I can count on my Lectrosonics gear.”
