Recording Drum Room Mics: Mid/Side Configuration
scenario; recording to analog tape. 8 mic lines from the studio into 8 mic inputs in C/R. recording bands live. rhythm section, then overdubs, horns if needed, vocals last.
assume there's 5 - sm57's and 2 - 414's in the collection already. we're on a tight budget. what 8 additional mics would you choose for the mic locker?
Any observations on the above or alternate recommendations would be most appreciated.
Whatever your opinion on these, it's always useful to be able to recognise them and know what they're really like.
I always but them, when I spot them to have a look. Some new ones - with rather odd performance this time.
Decide for yourselves, and beware on Ebay - I sense these are the new SM57 and 58 flood the market types.
I'm trying to figure out the best option for purchasing a portable recorder and mics. I'm mainly looking to record solo piano right now, but I will probably also use it in other situations down the road, such as jazz combo.
I've been looking at the zoom H5 and H6, as well as the zoom F4 and F6 and the Sound Devices MixPre-3 II. For mics, I'm mainly looking at the zoom capsules, the Audio-Technica AT2022 X/Y Stereo Microphone, and 2 RODE NT5 mics with additional omni capsules. I've also considered the Tascam DR-100mkIII.
I personally don't happen to agree with this, and I've spent some time trying to find examples of the science from respected sources, and I've failed. Loads of unsubstantiated comment, but no facts from any of the popular manufacturers, apart from the obvious ones.
Based on the feedback I got from respected members of this forum I ordered dynamic mic(s) to eliminate the background noise because all the other options (whichever was possible at my end) I already tried and getting mic was the only fix.
I've a home studio setup where I create educational video course and currently using MXL 770 with Scarlett solo 2nd gen.
FYI: So far I got SM57
and SM58 is in transit and I will try both of them whichever works best to eliminate the background noise I'll keep that and return the other one.
In this video, I demo some bass drum mics and show you can EQ them to fit in a mix. Sennheiser E602 II Sennheiser MD421 AKG D112 Shure SM57 Audio-Technica Pro25 Microphone-parts DiY T47
