Los Angeles, CA (September 25, 2012)—Bud Raymond, a location sound professional who works in TV and film, recently completed an independent film shot using Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless technology.
Raymond got his start in film work as a utility sound technician and boom operator roughly 12 years ago. For the past three years, he's been working as a sound mixer for TV and film and counts his contributions to the comedy film A.C.O.D. (Adult Children of Divorce) and Lifetime TV's comedy-drama offering, Drop Dead Diva among his most notable credits. His most recent project was for an independent film shot in Atlanta, GA, called Plus One.
Wherever Raymond goes, a Lectrosonics VR FIELD battery powered, modular receiver system stocked with six VRS receiver modules, and a VRMWB Venue receiver system with three VRT receiver modules are always close by. His transmitters include three Lectrosonics UM450 beltpack units, three UM400a beltpack transmitters, one SM super-miniature beltpack transmitter, and an SMV super-miniature beltpack transmitter. He also notes that he's become very fond of Ambient Recording's iPhone app called Lectromote for use with his SM series transmitters, "I love having the ability to adjust levels on my SM transmitters. It's really handy and I use this feature frequently."
He adds, "Fidelity and sound quality are the most important factors. Lectrosonics gear sounds fantastic. There's none of the disturbing audible artifacts that are frequently encountered with wireless systems that use compandors."
