Testing Placement of RODE NT5's with the Guzheng (Chinese Zither)


Just starting using a pair of RODE NT5's with directional capsules to record the guzheng. After some experimenting with positions, I've settled on both overhead, one on each side, about 3ft from the instrument. I've added no effects to this recording other than a compressor. What do you think?

Acoustic Sessions: RODE NT5s


Hi guys!

I've just purchased a Tascam US-122 MKII audio interface, two dead cats and a matched pair of RODE NT5s for recording via my laptop, hopefully outdoors. The reason for this is to have good audio for the videos i'll be filming on my canon 550d of various artists, for posting on YouTube, but maybe also, just for readers of my site, also downloads of the tracks.
