    Polarity vs Phase - Why do I need to know this? (video)

    Polarity vs Phase - Why do I need to know this ? Polarity and Phase are 2 things that anyone who does music production needs to master. Even if you only have a home studio, as soon as you start to use more than one microphone to record or if you are doing a lot of overdubs with the same...

    Two mics, different types different distances from guitar... how to check and avoid phase issues?

    Been experimenting with using two mics on my acoustic - an SM57 (dynamic), and a single RODE M5 (a condenser). I generally blend these (with the 57 doing most of the work) but the RODE still contributing. The 57 is generally up pretty close -anywhere from 8 to 12 inches, and the Rode is about...

    Phasey Sibliant Vocals

    Hi All, Was recording a female artist last week and seem to have had some issues. She was nice enough to do the vocals over again, but I'd like to figure out why this happened. First of all she's a very breathy singer, meaning you can hear her breathing quite a bit through the mic. The vocals...

    End of work....and Phase Cancellation Problem

    Hi all, Sunday i've finished the acoustic treatment in my home studio and everything seemed to play properly, but when I sat down at the listening position I noticed a phase cancellation on the low. From the measurements there's a hole of -10db at 63 and 66Hz I followed all the directions to the...

    Ambient mic always causes phase issues with close mic on guitar cab

    I keep seeing recommendations on the net for using two mics on a guitar cab at once. One dynamic mic close to the speaker cab while an ambient room mic is 4-8 feet away. When I try this, I run into phasing issues as expected. I suspect there is no way around the phase issue aside from...

    Two mics on guitar -- avoiding phase cancellation but new problem arises

    Hi. If I mic'ing a guitar amp, and I set one mic close and the other back, which creates a tonal blend preferred by the musician, I put a delay on the first mic so that the signals are coming to the board simultaneously to avoid phase issues. I checked the wav files and they are aligned -- as...

    Phase issues with ORTF technique

    Hello experts. Misa got a question. How far are the mics placed from the soundsource when using the ORTF technique? I tested it and noticed some phase issues. This is the setup I used: Recording acoustic guitar 2 pencil mics angled 110 degrees and distanced 17cm (6.6 inches) apart from...

    Are these tracks in phase?

    I recorded an amazing cello player the other day, and I wanted to practice stereo micing. The only matched pair I have is a couple of Apex 180s, which obviously aren't the best mics- I need to invest in a better set of pencils. I'm not happy with the sound that I got from them so I am going to...

    out of phase cables

    Is it possible to wire cables out of phase? For instance on the use of top and bottom of a snare. Are there any other cheap alternatives without changing inside of a DAW?

    Time-Align vs. Phase-Align

    I have read a couple of posts and articles on how to phase-align two out-of-phase signals, e.g. a bass / guitar DI and mic signal or two guitar cab mic signals. An easy and plausible way would be to zoom in on the waveforms of the two tracks and shift one of them so that the transients line up...

    Massenburg Hi-Res Parametric: Linear or Minimum Phase?

    I just got to play with a demo of the Massenburg Hi-Res Parametric EQ. It sounds pretty nice to me, but I would like to know more about it. Is it IIR or FIR? Linear phase or minimum phase? Nothing I can find online mentions these details, but maybe someone here has some inside info.

    Samplitude 11 Producer....phase invert?

    Am I nuts, or is there no way to invert the phase of a track in Samp11 Producer? I upgraded from Samplitude 10SE awhile back, to 11 Producer version. I was pretty happy with 10, but the every so often I'd hit a limitation with the number of plugins I was able to use, etc. I'm a little surprised...

    ORTF/MS Phase question

    I have a wind band recording I am working on (70 piece). While it is quiet, the room isn't that great, so the "hall" isn't helping so much. I have a pair of DPA 4011 in ORTF and a Schoeps MK4/MK8 MS pair on the same bar. I put them up just to A/B them. I have outriggers, but am not using...

    Phase switches-thoughts and concepts

    I recently picked up a D-tar Mama Bear, which is an emulation device meant to simplify and improve the sound of various acoustic guitar pickups. I am just now toying with it, and have no opinion yet, although they are liked by many guitar players, and are used to add some air and realistic...

    Cubase 4 phase invert

    Hi, I have Cubase 4 Studio. I'm not really sure why this version is called studio because it does not have a built in phase inverter. My friend assured that studio version had everything I needed but he was wrong and I switched the pick-ups to kill zone mode and he is no more. Anyhow, I...
