JuicedLink debuted a product at NAB (March) that I was very interested in, the Little DARling (Distributed Audio Recording). The concept was simple – instead of using wireless mics to transmit their audio to a single recording source, each mic would be individually recorded at the point of capture to a small wearable device. While I was sure that distributed audio recording could introduce some issues that I'd need to consider, I thought it was a solution that I could use for several of my video productions (assuming it was cost-effective).

The Little DARling was initially scheduled for release in late summer 2014. As that time came and went, I sent an email to Robert at juicedLink on Wednesday to inquire about the delayed release. He was tight-lipped about the details regarding the delay, but nudged me to subscribe to the blog for updates (the blog hadn't actually been updated since March). Two days later, an updated appeared...

Little DARling Update: Wireless Control

So, everybody wants to know what happened to the Little DARling Distributed Audio Recorder that I showed at NAB this year. Well, I got more ideas of things I wanted to add to it. Specifically, wireless control. It was clear after many conversations at NAB, that the market adoption of the Little DARling would be limited until a couple of problems were first solved:

  • How to sync the audio from the Little DARling with the video, when the Little DARling audio could potentially be very different from the camera audio.
  • How to navigate within potentially very long DARling recordings.

My plan became to introduce both versions of the Little DARling at the same time, so they could share the same printed circuit board. So, this meant pushing out the original DARling, to work on the wireless stuff. I also did not want to go public with this plan until I was far enough along with the design, where I knew I could fit the wireless receiver on the board. Check out this brief introduction v-log:

The entire update is worth reading if you might be interested in the Little DARling. I'm personally looking forward to this release.

We'll keep you updated as more details – like availability and price – roll in. [Sean]
