Last Christmas I recorded a grand piano+ mezzo soprano+soprano. I used a ldc mic (Austrian audio 818) and a zoom f6 32bit float. Unfortunately it sounded bad. There was a nasty distortion in the higher frequencies at some moments both the vocals came in. The mic did not clip and was put about 3m from the vocals. In fact the on camera mic (sdc stereo mic) was ok and saved the day. In the past I did some nice recording with this mic and a classical tenor.( I tested the mic afterwards and it is fine) Would a Schoeps mk40 or mk41 be a better option?
This hasn't happened, however, I was wondering: Suppose I have a powered speaker, like Yamaha, QSC, etc. The amp in the speaker dies, or stops working for whatever reason. If that were to happen, could the speaker be powered via an external amp, and be used like a normal passive speaker?
Hi, I have an Alesis MultiMix 4 mixer and a single QSC CP8 speaker. The manual for the mixer says to use 1/4 TRS for the main outs. And the speaker has a female XLR input. So my question is, if I only have one speaker, should I get a dual 1/4" TRS cable that terminates at the other end as a male XLR? Is that the proper connection when I only have one speaker? If not, how should I connect the main outs to the speaker? Thanks!
Does anyone know if there are any modern devices that do the same thing as the Roland SD-35 MIDI player? It was a great piece of hardware for playing general MIDI files. If not, what is the best way to play GM files via a Windows laptop with a good quality sound module?
