Default More recording fun

This demo recording is done with a AT2035 on the 5th fret, about 8" to 10" back and pointing at the 12th fret and an MXL 990 at the bridge, about 10" to 12" back, pointing at the soundhole. The AT's hipass is turned on for this demo.

I did some editing and EQ in Rx 7, Stereo pan and L/R gain matching in Audacity and delay added in Adobe.

Better. Personally I don't put a mike out from the 5th fret. There is more body and warmth with a mike closer to the body of the guitar (say around the 12th fret).

So, to a certain extent, they're pointing at each other?

Is this the proper technique.. Or should the mics be pointing straight ahead or is the angling a good thing?

I read the spaced mics need to be 3 to 1. Is this still the case? Meaning if 10" away from guitar.. the space between the 2 mics should be 30".

Not for stereo recording of a single instrument. See my youtube.

I haven't listened to your clip on anything where I can really hear. But the basic principle is this: if two mics are pointed directly at each other, then a sound emanating equidistantly from them will be phase-cancelled. In the real, non-anechoic world it won't totally vanish, but there will still be some degree of cancellation.

Thanks. But I was referring to TB's clip.

My question was is it a "good thing" to aim them inwards.

BTW - Barry.. I thought the clip sounded really good.

Ok, thanks Rick. I'll try that

No not really. There might be some overlap of their recording area, though.

Thanks Jake. I'm not sure if it's "good" but it sounds ok. I'm experimenting.
