Roux: We will definitely make you a copy, my lady.
Nel: So, let me just, I have to deal with this. What was Mr. Wolmarans deal at the shooting range?
Dixon: He organized for the range and the testing equipment. He sat with the recording gear and listened to the sounds and ensuring that it was correct.
Nel: Who fired the shots on the night that you were there?
Dixon: The shots were fired by Mr. Wolmarans.
Nel: Can I just ask you the recording of the second night of shots ever played to you?
Dixon: To the best of my memory, yes.
Dixon: I think it was, earlier this week. In the last few days.
Dixon: In the high court chambers on the 8th floor, in the office.
Dixon: Mr. Wolmarans, Mr. Roux and counsel.
Nel: Who else except counsel?
Dixon: No one else, my lady.
Nel: Was it explained to you how it was recorded?
Dixon: It was recorded in the exact same way, my lady.
Nel: Did they explain to you how it come about, who went to the range?
Dixon: Mr. Wolmarans said he went to the range. I imagine it was the same
Nel: The recording of gunshots of night 1, was that every replayed to you?
Dixon: Yes, my lady. I had copies of that. They played it to us that night so that we did not leave the range with poor quality recordings.
Nel: How many shots were fired that night?
Dixon: Not that many, my lady. The gun kept on jamming.
Nel: What is interesting for me, is that one can create that sound in rapid succession with a computer. Explain that to me?
Dixon: One does that with a sound programme. I suggested that because we had a problem with the gun. However to present a sound that has not be edited, we had to record a sound,
Dixon: made by a gun. It was not to mislead the court of the defence to the nature of the sound.
Nel: Why did you not tell the court that you had problems the first night in your evidence in chief?
Dixon: My lady, I was not asked about the night but about the sound.
Nel: So, we are talking about a music producer and not a sound expert?
Dixon: My lady, I had a conversation with the person in question.
Nel: Mr. Dixon, I am going to stop you there. Why would you want to do that?
Dixon: My lady, I was just trying to scetch the scene.
Dixon: My lady, I went onto the internet to listen to different sounds,
Nel: I am going to stop you everytime.
Nel: Was this person an expert in recording sounds of explosives and sounds?
Dixon: My lady, this is the first time that I have heard this question. I have no idea of the qualifications of this person and his experience.
Nel: On night one you said you could not do rapid fire, did you every hear what it would sound like as rapid fire?
Dixon: My lady, all the sounds that were recorded were produced by the music producer.
Nel: Did you at any time listen to a recording by the music recorder where those shots were played at rapid succession?
Dixon: No. my lady. No that night.
Dixon: My answer to the best of my knowledge is that I have never heard the sounds been transferred into an electronic rapid sound.
Nel: You are not a wound balastics'?
