Had a strange problem with my sound files on a recent shoot.
Basically it was a big hall and a talking head-static not moving. For recording I used a 702, a Sennheisser G3 E100 kit with the supplied lav- and a Rode NTG-3 on Boom.
The only way to avoid reverb really was to concentrate on getting a quality lav recording which sounded great in the cans and back at home on a Genelec 8030 :)
However when I chatted to the editor of the shoot they said the client had said the lav was sounding squeaky and high pitched(and unacceptable). They were monitoring in a big editing office, glass table with the bass and treble controls altered on these(http://www.roland.com/products/en/MA-15D/) even plugging the headphones through these to monitor.
Listening to the them the recordings really did sound odd-even to the point where I doubted myself!
It's a tough situation because if it sounds awkward to them-it's my fault and the lack of audio editing skills-eq, compression etc are missed from this kind of project.
Does anyone have any advice or experience with this? Is it just a case of sitting with the editor and working through it with them after the shoot?
