Shure sm7b -> XLR cable -> cloudlifter CL-1 -> XLR cable -> Scarlett 8i6 (Phantom Power On - Gain = 7) -> USB cable -> laptop.
I have both the stock pop filter on the mic itself as well as a pop filter attached to the boom stand.
I'm getting some strange wooshing feedback every time there is a new word in the verse, the best way I can describe it is that high frequency shifting noise you get when tuning a radio between stations.
Now I want to capture the live events and record it has to be easy and quick and light.
The vid cam mics actually do a pretty good job but they have gain control and you can't do much with them. So what's the best approach gear wise?
I can pull stereo feed off the board sounds really dry but I have no problem synching this to a video mix.
What's the best way to beef them up and make them more consistant? Compression? Delay?
Thanks for the help
Well, I record a lot of speed punk music (think old DRI, RKL, Suicidal Tendencies, etc...), and I've just about had it with my Audix OM5. I just can't get a natural sound out of it: it isn't bright enough; I have to EQ so much it just sounds unnatural by the time I get it to the point where the vocals are clean and cutting. I'm starting to get really skeptical of people who say that the old punk bands used dynamic mics., because they are way too dark-sounding when I use them. So, I'm wondering if anyone uses condenser microphones for screaming?
Anyone want to scream?
If I use your vocals you will get credit, and possibly a gift if my wallet allows.
Im in the proces of recording a hardcore/metalcore band. I recorded all the screams in the EP (most of the ep) twice- thinking it would be a good idea to enhance it. the vocalist is vary exprinced and made each take vary closely sounding as the one before...my qustion is how do you guys sugest I blance it? 2 of them in the dead center? I tryed paning it dead left and dead right and it sounds bad...should one be very low on volume? any suggestions? thanks alot!
love you all :!:
