mics

  1. Music: Recording Studio
    So, months, maybe even years of sweating over IR's, loads, modelers, etc., and the last few times I've recorded something that I've really liked, including today, has been a damn V30 and an SM57. A real one. I've got the week off, and today the wife took the kids to the doc, and I did some DI...

    Picked this up in a pawn store for $60. Been keen to give it a try for quite a few years given they were so cheap for so long and I've wanted to see what they're like on guitars and, having heard they're great on vocals, some of that too. It's kinda insane they're going for a couple hundred...

    Wasn't really thinking of keeping these but decided they'll come in handy now that I've got a drummer in my band. 4x SM57s 2x SM58s 2x Samson C02s Already got a 57 and a 58 so that gives me enough mics to fully do a kit. However I need to get a kick mic so I'm thinking of getting the SM7...

    So lately I've been studying the hell out of recording gear since I want to start recording. It's been interesting talking about gear and selling gear at GuitarCenter. Something that really stood out to me was how great the quality of RØDE mics are for how cheap they are. The NT1-A bundles...

    I'm building up my live sound rig and need to pick up more mics. Mostly looking for vocal mics, 57s, akg d112s, and e906s but may be interested in other things if offered. Definitely looking for good deals but I certainly won't try to steal your stuff, just not interested in overpaying either...
  6. Music: Recording Studio
    My mic crapped out so I need a good all around mic. I'd like something that can do voice, instrument and most importantly my talkbox. Any of the shit I do at home is not "pro" by any means so I don't need a super high quality studio mic. But, I want it to be good enough to take to gigs. So...

    I'd been doing what most of you guys were doing as well, I understand, and just muting the room mics on Superior. However, last night I started screwing with them a bit after reading some of the Systematic Mixing guide on the commute home, and not only turned up the "close" ambient mic, but also...
  8. Music: Other Instruments
    I herd from a freind that a drum mic is the same as a regular mic I'm pretty sure he's wrong but just making sure because I am recording soon and rather just use my regular mics then going out and borrowing/buying my own when I'm not even a drummer. :scratch:

    I just copy-pasted from ss.org, because fuck retyping! I got an SM57 for christmas, so i've spent my morning making impulse responses! The guitar cab is a Rivera 2X12 cab with V30 speakers, and i made the impulses with the SM57, my Se X1, and a TLM MT85-MKII. Download link...

    Question for you folks that reamp the old fashioned way. I have (some piece of gear, ho ho) coming that'll allow me to DI, and I'd like to use that DI to reamp with my 6505. I've got that part down, but here's the question - usually when I see people micing up cabs in studios, it's one mic on...

    Found this on the Sneap forum. Here's how to position your overheads if you have an off-center snare and want the snare in the center of the stereo field.

    After the sm57 whats good for recording cabs? Any specific dual micing techniques anyone here uses? Any single micing techniques with something other than a 57?
  15. Music: Recording Studio
    Looks like i'll have a few mics to play with, an Audix I5, Sennheiser e906, SM57, and some condensers too, but I found some clips of an AKG D112 and WOW it sounds freaking Amazing on guitars. Looking at its price, I was wondering if there was anything similar that I could find used a bit...
  16. Music: Recording Studio
    I've been thinking about getting a condenser microphone, so I can do some more recording with my acoustic. I love playing acoustic, but I prefer the sound of a miked acoustic to the sound of the preamp in it. I've been looking at a few mics - Studio Projects B1 - I had a shot of one of these...

    I am in need of 2 good, but cheap Condenser Mics for recording cymbals. If its expensive new but goes cheap used, thats fine by me too. I'm basically going to do a hybrid mostly electronic kit with real cymbals and snare, so I don't need anything super duper and i'll just get some used SM57's...
  18. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    A friend of mine had this lying about and asked if it would be any use and that I could take it if I ever needed to borrow it. Anyone got any info on these?

    What the title says. Go!

    I'm kicking myself for not breaking out that Nady RS-4 sooner. :lol: It just REALLY likes my Rectoverb. Let's do this as a proper before/after. It's not a "fair" comparison because I've changed a fucking LOT on this demo, but it's still interesting. First, the Reaper demo I did while screwing...
