D6 on acoustic and vocals...

  1. Well as I was recording some acoustic songs and using pro tools for the first time my mic collection is very few right now and I figured I would try the D6 over a cheap AKG dynamic. Positioning the D6 about 12" away from the sound hole at a slight angle really picked a great tone and then a SM58 positioned at about the 12, 10 fret at a slight angle facing down the neck about 10" to 14" away, which gave it a more of a dirty acoustic tone.

    For the vocals I had to run the pres pretty hot and had the signer play the D6 when he was softly singing to get within 4" and then back off a few inches when he started sing. Again, the D6 brought a lot of clarity in the vocals, very pleased.

    Eventually I'll have a link to that recording for you all to hear for yourself if you have not tried using a kick mic doing acoustic work.

    Minnesotans have them some strange notions on recording. :-?

    But sure, let's hear a link. This may be the first and only time a D6 and an SM58 has been used to record acoustic guitar.
