Hi, I have a project I am doing as a favour for a friend he is recording his book to CD, and I have not had any experience with micing for this purpose. it should be a natural appealing sound that is not super compressed/close miced - that is I'm not after a typical in your face " radio " sound, just a clear natural clean and appealing recording. The Mic I have is a Rode Classic II, no chance of using anything else if that isn't any good! I have a TC Gold Channel, and also I am probably going to have a Metric Halo ULN2, which I will use as the mic pre and then "if" I use the Gold channel it will probably be after the track is recorded to Cubase where I can process it digitally afterwards. I want to do as little to this as possible really. Preferably I will use the Waves plugs I own. I was thinking about using 96k 32bit just for fun since it's only one track and my computer can manage that, of course there's no need but maybe it will just be easier to just do 24/48. anyway, particularly I'm looking for any advice concerning mic placment and any other advice about what happens next would be great. Thanks, Micky.
