I finally managed to record some thunder. Since I’ve had this gear we’ve not had a decent thunder storm. Or, if we have, I’ve been elsewhere without any recording equipment with me. This is a mix of several hours of recordings today. I basically hit record and went and watched TV to catch up on all the documentaries I’ve recorded over the last few weeks. (ABC have had some good programs on lately) These have been ‘time’ edited to remove the long wait for the next clap (commonly referred to in Meteorological circles as clapgaps and not to be confused with claptrap)
Recorded from under our carport using a Schoeps M/S pair of CCM4Lg & CCM8Lg directly into my SD 702 from the comfort of my lounge chair. I was concerned that the microphone stand may get hit by lightening, and Kerry would come home to a charred cable with a charred microphone at one end and a charred man wearing headphones at the other…..
