My microphone seems to think I am the Hulk. When I'm recording demonstrations on court, the sound of footsteps is often loud and bassy. You know, the kind of exaggerated bass you get in films where something hits the floor dramatically -- like the One Ring, or a badass hero / villain stepping out of a car while the camera looks at their shoes. I have tried adjusting this in post production, but it my efforts so far have made the whole audio sound very thin (I used parametric equalisation to try reducing low frequencies). And the footsteps are still oddly heavy even after this drastic interference. I'm not sure why this happens. Vibrations through the floor maybe? It's a sprung wooden floor. I'm actually quite light, and while my footwork is far from perfect, I wouldn't describe myself as stompy. Also we had the same issue when we were using a large boom instead, which I would have thought would dampen any vibrations. I am recording with two microphones: a medium shotgun on the camera, and a large shotgun on a stand. It seems that most of the bass is coming from the big mic, which does pick up bass better (the other one is a bit tinny on its own). One solution might be to just remove/reduce the big mic audio volume (in post). But I am curious whether anyone has some insight into what's going on. Maybe there is some trick I'm missing.
