When mic runners use two microphones with the same frequency, in order to cover the audience, only one mic can be turned on at any time.
Due to miscommunication and poor microphone techniques, the audio file had to be edited extensively to boost or lower volumes and to remove excessive noises from mic handling and squeals. Microphones (with rubber bands) on the same frequency were turned on simultaneously causing loud squeals.
The guest officer with Ofc. Todd Wiebke, O'Neil, declined to use a microphone and at one point, Ofc Wiebke's mic was taken away from him. Those two factors drastically lowered sound quality.
When I raised the amplitude for off-mic speakers, it caused on-mic speaker amplitude to jump way up. I then had to lower on-mic levels in post-production.
We Need To Get All Speakers On Mic! No Recordings From A Distance.
REMINDERS AND LESSONS LEARNED:
1. Mic runners should not turn on two microphones on the same frequency at the same time.
2. Mic runners should turn off mics when not in use to avoid handling noises and to reduce risk of two mics being turned on using the same frequency.
3. Mic runners should not take a microphone away from a guest speaker with the assumption that they can be recorded from several feet away.
4. Show audiences how to use a microphone.
5. Do sound checks before introductions.
6. Start recording before introductions start.
