Thanks Steven - as if I didn't know! MY point was imagining an entire
orchestra being mimed by all 104 or so actors, and how to get them to
know when to play what note.. just a silly thought.

My partner's son is visiting, so I rented some Doors films for him -
and it is so painfully obvious even in primitive "music videos" of the
sixties then is it sync'd - the music mix is perfect, and he's using a
mic with no windscreen, and the P's don't pop... et cetera. Sometimes
there is not cable on the mic, and no it is not a radio mic!

BTW pardon my typo - meant Movies not Lovies!
