I have a sax quartet and need to record our performances for some QC. The music we play are jazz standards and the arrangements have a lot going on in the inner voices. We need to be able to listen to our performances to check out how we balance on set vs in rehearsal. Our set up is usually...
micing guitar cab with a Royer R-121 and a Shure SM57. Special attention to phase alignment and mic placement technique.
I've got a session tomorrow and Saturday with a classical vocal sextet and am looking for advice in terms of miking them.
The mics I'll be using are a pair of Rode NT5's small diaphragm condensers and pair of Audio Technica AT4040 large diaphragm condensers. The venue is a small church...
So, I sometimes use the SIR1 plugin for reverb (its free!). It takes impulse responses of different locations around the world to simulate reverb. You can even make your own, which I did. I took a pair of SDC's and recorded them in XY inside a giant staircase in my school. It sounds pretty cool...
We are about to do Les Mis School's Edition and I have the lovely job of doing the sound.
However, looking for some advice.

Thinking of solo classical string bass- I’ve had this come up twice this year. What do you all do for accent micing? Any success stories for Mains positions?
My best success has been with a stereo 414s in fig 8, aimed at the lower portion of the front panel, with the null on the bridge-...

I've asked for advice here before on this but this is slightly different. I have a low end Ibanez acoustic with preamp and have been micing it with an AT3035 (the done away with version of the 2035 from what I understand). I've been recording straight into my Firestudio with the Ibanez' preamp...
A few days ago I heard a engineer saying that the best way to record the guitar amp is putting the cabinet (speaker) up something like a rack, chair, etc.
Is it really true?
Is there some acoustic problem on this?
Thanks everyone, and sorry for my english.
I'm new here, so forgive me for being a bit green ;)
Is there ways to Mid-Side Stereo micing without a Bi-directional or Figure of 8 microphone
Alternate techniques, to accomplish full/warm sound.
I finally can record stereo drums but need some advice on which specific mic to put where. I have anSM58, a Sennheiser e835, an MXL 990, and an MXL 991 condenser. I have an ATM 25 on the kick, so that's taken care of. Just trying to figure out which mics should be left and right, which one I...
I have concerns...
My drummer just ordered a Ludwig Keystone kit with the two large floor toms, and 26 inch kick drum. It seems this is geared towards live?. The kick is sealed i believe and looks like it comes with Evans G2 heads for all toms. He also got the Ludwig Black Magic snare already...
Hello all! I will be recording an original composition of mine and I'm lost on how to mic it with what I have...
The performing ensemble will be:
- Bass/ Baritone
- Piano (9 foot grand)
- Percussion (mallet- vibraphone, chimes, marimba, bass...
So, I have been quite proud of my abilities to mic up and edit a large drum set over the past few years, although it has all been natural drums that I have produced. With my current musical project I want to use Superior Drummer for the bass drum and possibly even the snare and/or...
I'm having trouble getting a natural sound for an Upright Bass (contrabass) in a live room with drums. I've been micing the bass and distancing the player from the drums by 10 - 15 feet, i'm not an isolation junky so I don't mind getting the tracks a little messy. Any frequencies i'm not getting...
Hi, this question is for a live performance. I play a mandolin and am interested in a high end mountable condensor such as a DPA 4099. Planning to use a wireless body pack, which I'd plug into a stage mixer. Here's my question - I'd like a foot switch to attenuate the signal depending when...
