Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT MICROPHONE CAN I USE IN THE SOUND SHARK?
CAN I RECORD MORE THAN ONE PERSON AT A TIME?
For example, the audio “sweet spot” is 5 feet in diameter for subjects 10 feet away and so on. Any subjects within that circular area will be picked up very well by the Sound Shark. As people move out of the “sweet spot” the level of audio picked up by the Sound Shark will be gradually reduced.
The video on the right shows a great demonstration of the Sound Shark’s pickup pattern.
HOW CAN I FIND THE SOUND SHARK’S “SWEET SPOT”?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SOUND SHARK AND YOUR 9-INCH KLOVER MIK?
In the Sound Shark, the microphone is mounted using a single clip instead of the two symmetrical clips. This clip is easier to install and adjust but more likely to move out of adjustment when receiving the hard knocks that broadcast equipment often receive.
In addition the Sound Shark does not include the shotgun mic adapter (cylindrical rod) that comes with the Klover MiK 09.
CAN I PICK ONE PERSON’S VOICE OUT FROM A CROWD?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT CONNECTOR MY DEVICE HAS?
DO I HAVE TO MOUNT IT DIRECTLY TO MY CAMERA?
I'M NOT GETTING ANY SOUND FROM MY SOUND SHARK, WHAT DO I DO?
CAN I USE A RECTANGULAR LAPEL MICROPHONE WITH THE SOUND SHARK?
WHY ARE THERE ONLY TWO SCREWS HOLDING THE MOUNTING BLOCK TO THE FRAME?
If you are not mounting the Sound Shark to your camera, or need a more rigid connection, you can add the two spare screws included with your Sound Shark, to the joint.
THE NYLON SCREWS BROKE, WHAT DO I DO NOW?
Remove the remnant of the broken screw from the mounting block and replace the screws with the spare screws included in your Sound Shark box. If more screws are required, look for “Nylon #6-32 x ½” Flat Head” screws at your local hardware store, Ace Hardware, Fastenal, MSC, Grainger, or on Amazon. You can also purchase a Sound Shark Spare Parts Kit.
