...through the speakers with a Zoom H1 Handy Recorder, using the condenser capsules. So far, it's been pretty much trial and error as to the absolute *best* position that the H1 should be in, in relation to the keyboards speakers. For the most part, I've been positioning the H1 halfway between the two speakers, at a flat angle ( 90 degrees ) with the mics located over the white keys of the keyboard. I get pretty acceptable results but I feel I could be doing better. Here's an example: View To A Kill - Title Song By Duran Duran by skyy38 on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free Which is why I want to start at the beginning with this and cover everything that I possibly can. And, you're probably asking "why don't you just use the 'line-in' jack, dude?" More on THAT later. I'm using a Casio WK-1350 keyboard. The furnished room in which I record is surrounded by sheetrock and concrete and is fairly lively,but not impossibly so. The height of the room is about 10-11 feet, approx. There are three reverb settings on the Casio-Room, Stage and Hall. I use mostly Stage, sometimes Room. I hardly ever use Hall unless it is on something that is either soft or ambient or doesn't use a lot of percussion because of my recording environment. On the sample recording, I used Stage because with Hall, it would have been all over the place, acoustically speaking. Should I lift the H1 at more of an angle, say, 45 degrees, still over the white keys, so the capsules have a better shot at the speakers? Speaking of the capsules, is the sound recorded through the tips (front) of the mics, or is the sound recorded through the little open "bands" on the barrels of the mics? Oh yeah, the reason why I'm not using the "line in" ( or, actually, CAN'T ) is because either I got a bum unit OR the H1 AD converters are not up to the job, because I get horrible distortion when I try to line record. Any help appreciated!
