Hear it from the horses mouth…. Super low cost large diaphragm vocal condensers and I love how it comes out. I use this method mainly for recordings that sound more or less vintage. Sample sounds great, too. your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile? Good luck for the next! Graham – Great post, as always! I loved as much as you’ll receive carried out right here.

This is AWESOME. The key to getting this mic in phase with your first overhead mic is to make sure that the grill of the micrphone is exactly the same distance from the center of the snare as the first overhead mic. I’ll be sure to post an example in context when this gets mixed, right now it’s not done yet. Let’s take a look…. In your example, the hat and ride seemed a bit overpowering. Nice post. It’s going to be ending of mine day, except before ending I am reading this enormous piece of writing to increase my know-how. I’m planning to record some drums using this technic but I don’t have any large diaphragm condensers. I just prefer the sound of large diaphragms.. really good technique i used it on my recording class, its more easy to get the sound you are looking for. Attractive section of content. Say in a Bar or outdoor amphitheater setting. I now have a 4 channel audio interface, the presonus 44vsl. Thanks for the help! again since exactly the same nearly a lot often inside entertained.
