Hi all! I was offered to be "the sound guy" for a recent lo/no short film, and was kindly offered a shotgun mic and boom pole for the job. I was planning on recording onto my laptop (since I don't own a field recorder) and came across the "Boom Recorder" software from VOSGAMES.
I must say that I am very impressed with this product, as it did away with me having to write down file numbers/notes etc on paper, with the take number automatically updating after you stop recording.
The files are stored as wavs in chronological order in a dedicated simple to read file. The only problem I had with it was having to go back to the laptop to adjust levels (I was the boom op on set) and craning my neck to see the meter on screen.
I am currently running the trial version, and am giving serious thoughts to purchasing the full version, and am just wondering if anyone else has had any experience/problems/annoying quirks whilst using it?
