    A discussion that began in the Harvey Gerst REP Recording Forum here on ProSoundWeb that provides relevant/useful points and references. Topic posted by pavement I have recorded a demo of my band, and we used pretty awful microphones, but after purchasing and loaning some mics, I have the following: Studio Projects C1, Shure SM57/58, and two AKG C3000’s. This was what I was thinking: the C1 on kick drum (I know it sounds odd, but I got the best sound… View this story

    As a complete oversimplification, a microphone is an instrument which measures differences in air pressure. It is not surprising that somebody would, in light of the interest in Quadraphonic sound, experiment and perfect an instrument which would measure and transduce the differences in air pressure around a full 360 degrees - to effectively create a quadraphonic microphone. Figure 1 (click to enlarge) Such a truly Quadraphonic device, developed by engineer Carl Countryman and producer Brad Miller, is in external appearance… View this story

    Audio-Technica provides a pretty compelling reason as to why you might always want to “get your own mic.” It’s the brainchild of Gary Boss of A-T. . View this story

    This article is provided by Home Studio Corner.   A reader is puzzled by stereo (2-mic) acoustic guitar recording: I recently got into mixing acoustic guitar with 2 mics. The problem is that I do not know how to create as much ‘space’ as some tracks I know of. I’ve tried XY, ORTF, and spaced pair. XY and ORTF are too narrow. Spaced pair seems reasonable (following the 3:1 Rule), but the mic pointed closest to the body becomes overly… View this story
