As mentioned in another thread, I'm working on the sound track of a film which is trying to emulate a vintage, somewhat low-fi feel. The majority of this is most likely going to be accomplished by careful use of compressors, EQ, and plugins such as Izotope Vinyl. However, I was recently struck by the idea that it might be interesting to record foleys and sound effects using vintage equipment as well. I considered using a tape deck, but, as that was expensive, I decided that the microphone itself might be a good place to start.
Does anyone know what equipment the film sound unit of a 70s film might consist of? I looked at one microphone, an Electro-Voice 644 as a possible shotgun mic to record foleys with. Any suggestions? Thanks
