Vancouver, BC, Canada (May 27, 2011)--David Husby has been using Sound Devices gear on the production of Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked.
With a Sound Devices 788T digital recorder and its CL-9 linear fader controller and CL-8 controller in tow, and a second 788T serving as a back-up, location sound mixer Husby's rig has accompanied him on shoots for The A-Team, Tooth Fairy, Rise of the Apes, The Big Year and Final Destination 5.
Husby had previously been using another digital recorder with a Sound Devices 788T as a backup when an unfortunate transportation department accident destroyed his entire rig. "The situation I was in forced me to immediately put Sound Devices into service, under duress, and it performed flawlessly."
Currently on set for the CGI/live-action feature Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked, Husby recorded an important dialogue scene deck-side on a cruise ship as it steamed away from the coast of Honduras. "My gear has seen plenty of water; being based in the Pacific Northwest, it has been subjected to torrential rain, been covered in snow, exposed to the humidity, and all extremes of heat and cold and has never given me any issue whatsoever," says Husby. "I have used it in nearly every possible environmental condition one could imagine and my Sound Devices equipment has never let me down."
