I couldn't find this specific topic covered.
If you choose to mention brand names, that's okay, but I'm not here to ask what kind of mic I should buy.
1-What does one typically use an LDC for? What about an SDC? And why?
I am looking to record acoustic guitar. A lot of folk and finger picking so low volume playing. Based on what I have read so far I am in the market for Small Diaphragm Condenser(s).
I'm looking to buy a pair of SDC's for location recording of classic vocal groups and ensembles.
SDC Choices... I have a HUGE 64 voice choir to record next month and my main/primary issue is micing the large choir to achieve tracks that will be usable for adjusting balance with minimal phase problems and bleed from other instrumentation and vocals.
I'll be getting a pair of good small diaphragm condensers, here in a couple months.
Would like those of you with experience with these mics to describe how there character in sound.
They'll be used as overheads to track drums for all genres, and they'll be my main SDC's
Which Neumann SDC do you prefer for acoustic guitars...
Steel > KM84
Nylon? > KM184
I need a pr of sdc's for recording acoustic guitar. I'm considering the RODE nt-5's, Avantone CK-1, and the Studio Projects C-4. What is your opinion?
