[PICS] ASSAULT WEAPONS - Weapons & Microphones

Assault Weapons Microphone Setup

The 25 weapons of our extensive ASSAULT WEAPONS SFX library were recorded with more than 60 microphones that were positioned around the shooter and also directly attached to the shooter and the weapon. The ASSAULT WEAPONS CONSTRUCTION KIT comes with 18 well-selected channels. Read on to see the weapons we recorded and a detailed MIC-Setup of the 18 channels showing the microphones types that we used and the distance to the shooter.
