This is a poll I want to know what audio samples you like the best between the first three and then between the second three. The first three samples are vocals (vox1,2,3) and the last three are acoustic guitar pickings (Gtr1,2,3). Audio Samples 1-6 on SoundCloud This is how they were tracked... All the audio went through a Trident S40 preamp with the EQ engaged and used the same EQ settings for each type (one setting for vocals - all mics, one setting for guitar - all mics). The compressor was also engaged and placed Pre-EQ. The audio in the DAW was sent through the same reverb (UAD RealVerb-Pro) with the same amount of wet signal added via a common Bus. On the stereo output, there were the following UAD-2 plug-ins (settings slightly changed between the vocal and guitar samples to calm the peaks down):1x 1176LN compressor 2x LA-2A (one on compression mode, one on limiter mode) I will now reveal what microphones were used AND WHERE: Vox1 & Guitar1 = Shure SM57 Vox2 & Guitar2 = AKG C414 Vox3 & Guitar3 = AKG Perception 220 The same three microphones were used on both the guitar and the vocals and were recorded in my humble basement recording space. Although very few people actually voted prior to knowing what mics were used and where, I'm surprised that the SM57 won on both. Especially over the C414 on vocals... interesting.
