Small details

Whenever anyone goes on a recording trip everything needs to be planned out very throughly. Every last cable, cord and connector must be accounted for, tested, and packed. Here is what it looked like while we were testing and packing.

Testing the gear

Both tables of equipment are what we are taking.

We have to think of ALL the details. For instance where we are going it’s 220 volts and the plugs are supposed to be 4.8 millimeter dual round prongs. But we know from previous trips that the regulations aren’t always followed everywhere in the country and so we are taking 4.0 millimeter prongs as well. It wouldn’t do if we couldn’t plug in!

4 and 4.8 millimeter plugs

So we have checked and packed everything now and done a sample recording on each computer just to be sure. This gets the thumbs up from my travel partner, John.
