Well, thats it the recording is now over. The title really says it all I suppose, we have covered far more than excpected. With a few phone calls, and backhanders like always we managed to get exactly what was required and more.
[R-DEV]sofad had his dream today, as there was lots of TRUCKS for him to record, including the HET as seen in the picture, the CST, Foden, MAN truck etc.
[R-DEV]Jaymz, carried on his weeks fetish of all things with a manual traverse cupolla, and spent some time in the top of the Mastiff.
[R-DEV]Twisted Helix spent the day explaining how things sound, using his own expressions to do so, which entertained us all. We where joined also be [R-DEV]strima today as our Driver, as this man is trained on the lot, and even showed us all the "horns" of each vehicle (HET and CST win by a mile) !!
So overall a productive week, but now we have collected the sounds, its time for the Project Reality Sound Dept, to really start work with what will be long hours sat at the computer in post production.
The weather was kind all week, as I had booked it, and therefore it ran like clockwork like the whole week.
Check out sofads, and Jaymz's T-Shirt Tans from the back of the "mobile studio" !! A bit of sun for the Dev's prior to being locked back away at their PC's ....lol. You wouldn't believe it was throwing it down with rain on the 1 1/2 hour drive up to Warminster.
So with things drawing to a close now, and the week wrapping up, I thought it would be fitting for them to relax a little now, and phoned a pal at the Tank Muesum for a few free tickets, so they can relax and wander around there prior to taking them to the train station.
I am sure the guys will have more detailed Blogs for you guys over the next few days, so stay tuned.
