John Leonard and Thomas Rex Beverly in a discussion about everything from recording techniques to gear.
Notes from Thomas!
- I do online field recording lessons, so maybe you could put this link in the notes from the talk? https://thomasrexbeverly.com/products/field-recording-online-lessons. I’m always happy to answer quick questions, but if anyone TSDCA members ever want to have a longer conversation about recording I love teaching lessons. I also do masterclasses for teams and students.
- Here’s the link to the DIY hydrophones I mentioned in the talk: https://www.instructables.com/Lets-Build-Some-World-Class-Hydrophones/.
