Yes, for the past few months, field recording has been the name of the game. As previously mentioned, I've been attempting to tackle many themes for The Sound Collectors' Club. In July, I recorded the Dallas, TX 'city skyline,' as well as a few freight trains passing through Irving and Denton, TX. The new MKH416 and pair of CM3's have worked beautifully, as have the Sound Devices 702's I'm currently using. Additionally, I took two separate trips on business to the Texas/Mexico border over the summer, capturing some interesting sounds there.
For a while, I've been following a recommendation for field recording; it suggests using an XLR Y-cable to record two tracks from the same source. In my case, this source is usually a shotgun microphone at the end of a boom pole. It may seem redundant (it is), but over time, I've found it to be a method worthy of mention.
