Instamic Stories | VIDEO | Guy Berryman of Coldplay and Alfa Romeo


This post means the world to me for several reasons.  

These beautiful videos were created by friends and colleagues from my very tiny town in Italy.  They describe the time when the industry in Italy was creating pieces of art, not products. They talk about talents like Guy Berryman who are saving our heritage, making sure these cars are preserved with love and care.

Even if I cannot find the time to grab my camera and capture amazing projects like these, being there with our Instamic makes me feel there.

Michele Baggio - Videographer and Instamic CEO


 

"My name is Riccardo Vojvoda, I'm a professional sound engineer. Me, my brother Edoardo, who is the director and editor, and my dear friend Alessandro Venier, the photographer, are specialized on automotive videos and documercials. We work for Italian brands such as Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Abarth.

 

I was looking for a smart solution to record car engine sounds in a practical and quick way. I invested a lot on lavaliers and wireless systems, which sound great but are complicated to apply and hide in the car, plus they are delicate and I always worry when I'm not familiar with the car.

Then I tried Instamic. I was quite skeptical at first because I doubted that an affordable mic/recorder like Instamic could resist such high SPL level and maintain the quality I needed. So the first time I used it, I coupled it with another lavalier mic.

 





Once I listened to the results, I was really enthusiastic about the full and high-quality sound I got from it! The second time I used the Instamic alone and decided to trust its results without a backup mic!
It's easy to apply with the magnet, especially on old cars which still have iron parts to stick onto. I usually use some tape too, to be sure I'm not going to lose it on the way, and the job is done! No worries, plenty of recording time, long-lasting battery, and the very useful automatic gain level which allows you to have a good recording when you don't have the time to test the manual gain.


I would surely recommend it to any sound recordist who is looking for an easy way to get a great sound in a matter of seconds.
I just bought a second one!!"

Instamic impressed me by their usability! They helped me a lot and gave me the possibility to capture moments of sound that would have never been able to capture before that.

They were crucial for my project and the key to an authentic way of capturing the action!
