my 'Film" question is about sound. Where would be a good place to get some sound info?
I have purchased a pro-tools "M-Box" and I have a couple good mics. The problem is the sound has a very "tin" like quality...and no one is talking(books or web sites) that specifically attack this problem.
thanks

If you have a ProTools interface and "good mics" you should have good sound. If the sound is not to your taste, you may want to think about other mics or pre-amps, because they all color the sound to some degree, but what you have should be acceptable to most people.

It may be the sound of the solid-state mis pre-amp that is not to your liking. Try a tube-based mic pre-amp for a more classic, warm sound.

Or, there may be something wrong with your equipment, or your monitoring devices.

You need to give us more information. What mic, preamp, etc? Your post is way too vague...

"I bought a nice car and put gas in it but it turns funny." Yes, and...?
