Recording the sound of emptying a 55 gallon drum filled with yucky, rusty water for an upcoming sound effects library. I placed a MKH-8040 at the front of the barrel to get the close up water pouring sounds that came out. At the rear of the barrel is a MKH-416 to capture the hollow, metallic water movement as it was leaving the barrel.
