Bobby Owinski has provided his blog readers with a list of factors to consider before they ultimately push the record button on their new track. Things such as placing the mic in the correct position before recording can make a world of difference when you're actually recording. Also be sure that the mics are the correct distance in order to promote the most high quality sound and instrumentation when your recording is playing back over the system.
- Test all your equipment and placements extensively before you decide to record
- Mic placement is a big part of sound quality, and care needs to be taken to adjust them correctly.
- Mic placement can not be guessed at or the same for every piece. Each placement must be newly found
“Make sure that you start with a great acoustic sound with the instrument well tuned and minimum of sympathetic vibrations and extraneous noises.”
