Jane, Jasper, and I went on a road trip all the way down to Joshua Tree in Southern California. It's the first time I've gotten to really put my new Kata backpack with all the gear to the test. It worked really well!
The backpack was able to comfortably fit my entire blimp, 8060 shotgun, Mixpre-D, Sony M10, cables, batteries, the deadcat and my ath m50 headphones. As well as my Manfrotto mic stand clipped on the side. Easy to carry and well protected.
When we got to the cabin I was sick and we had a busy day, so I only had once chance to go out at night, sick, and record anything I could bump into. Really happy with the clarity and crispiness of some of these recordings:
Some water coming down the runoff
Scraping my foot on a metal trapdoor
Scraping my foot on a big piece of wood
Scraping some tiles I found in the backyard against each other
Sliding door and matching sliding screendoor
A handful of many siberian husky, Covey, vocalizations
Dry, crunchy sticks found around the desert floor
My very own jacket's zipper!
Really wish I would've had more time to record more, while not sick, but I take what I can get!
