I used the ZOOM H2n to record sound effects and to create a story fight sequence. I set the recorder to the X/Y channel and also set the file format as MP3. I placed the recorder right next to my iPad while playing the video to focus on the sounds loud and clear. What I record the sound effects is from Bruce Lee’s movies that Bruce Lee uses his battle cries while fighting the opponents at the same time. Most of the sound effects scenes from Bruce Lee’s movies that I recorded is without background musics included so it would be easier for my to create my own sound effect story therefore when hearing back the sounds playback, you cannot tell the what scenes was from that it was used to be recorded in general.
I found a website about the sound effects foley how it was made that can apply to the media to create a story of a procedure. For example, it explains that “Foley effects are sound effects added to the film during post production (after the shooting stops). They include sounds such as footsteps, clothes rustling, crockery clinking, paper folding, doors opening and slamming, punches hitting, glass breaking, etc. etc. In other words, many of the sounds that the sound recordists on set did their best to avoid recording during the shoot”.
Overall, I enjoy recording the sounds when knowing how to adjust the channels and file format from the recorder to hear the playback recordings for the results.
