Default Re: HELP! Acoustic guitar recording and mixing.

I spent the past month agonizing over this. I had AKG 1000, 2000, and a Real Tube mics. I tried them in all kinds of configurations and locations and it just didn't help much. I bought a dbx 386 mic preamp with D/A and it helped a little bit, but I still wasn't satisfied. Finally, I broke down and bought a matched pair of Neumann KM184's. It was like the heavens opened. It doesn't seem to matter where you put them, they just sound good. My advice is to spend the money and save yourself the grief. I think you get what you pay for.

That's the same article Jerry.
But that's not where I got it from.

Rick,

I know it's a lot to ask, but could you post a little acoustic ditty with the new mics, no EQ or effects so us poor folk can hear how the other half lives?

Thanks

I got a trick the otherday using my Shure condensers to mic an acoustic guitar. I have about a 12'x10' room and I use one aimed directly at the soundhole. The other I put across the room from the musician about 8 feet away, it work great for me! Just a suggestion to try out!

Fellas,

This has been bothering me and hopefully someone can answer my question. In respect to panning, does it matter if you record the instrument center spaced and THEN pan it during mixdown or do you need to record the intrument already panned to it's destined position? Is the final sound affected differently by using one method over the other? I hope this makes sense...thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this.

Xavier

Hi Xavier,

No, panning only effects the tracks output in regard to the stereo field(or bussing to another track or output). It doesn't matter how a track is panned when you're recording because it has no effect on input. Think of panning as how you want to listen to the track, not how you want to record it.

OH [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] ! I had no idea...here I was thinking I needed to record the tracks already panned to their designated location. Whoops! Thanks alot, now I don't need to worry about "making sure" that my tracks are panned before I record.
