    Fredman SM57 miking technique; anyone still doing this?

    So I’m 98% sure I found out about this here, but is anyone still doing/doing the Fredman technique?

    I just ordered one more SM57 and this:

    Curious to see how it sounds. Currently doing a SM57/e609 combo which is cool.

    Do you go two mics into the daw, or do you go two mics into a a mixer and then run the combined singal from that into one track of the daw?

    I just ordered a focusrite so I need to know these things

    I go two mics into the daw (actually 3, since I also use a 122 on another speaker). Having the different 57 tracks available allows you to change the tone without having to use EQ. Of course, you could just get it right and sum it to a single track when you record, but I have commitment issues

    I did it for a while and liked it, but prefer the MD421 as a second mic. Cheap to try though, even without a special clip.

    This. Two 57s is just needlessly overcomplicating things.
