Re: is a figure 8 a figure 8?

equal - definitely not - similar maybe - sometimes - depends - same model of mic can null differently - especially old ones put some headphones on and bring your mic close to your mouth and make some sound into it as you turn it around and then you'll know what that specific mic does I'd guess the r...

Re: unhyped kick drum mic

bass drum is hard af to record well imho You're not kidding there. I'm always trying different things. Today I tracked a song for a remote client with only 6 open channels on his hard disk recorder. I had to blend an in and out mic to 'tape.' Usually not a huge problem, but I'm also playing, so the...

Re: Device that elevates one microphone to speaker level

used Anchor AN-100 off eBay?

you'd have to use an inverter to run it from DC and maybe you need a specific speaker though it might be something that works for you ?

Re: Best Saturation For Specific Instruments

This is kind of like bringing up spaghetti in a pizza conversation, but I've always preferred saturation from amps, outboard boxes and/or pedals. Not even necessarily expensive stuff. The combination of a tone knob, a gain knob and the infinite degrees of how hard you can hit the gain stage by twis...

Re: Tascam 388 Muddy Recording

all the general stuff has been said sans don't clean the rubber parts with alcohol - use mild soap and water

and the 95%+ alcohol is use because of the water content in the lesser types can cause rust

real magnetic head solvent and the spongey swabs work best and fastest

Re: Oktava mk 012 hypercardioid capsules

I have the -10db pads. The are crucial for close micing drums. Thanks for talking a little in depth about the difference between the hyper and cardioid capsules. I've thought about checking out the e609's. They would be great for my mobile rig because of the clips. I have some Heil PR-28's which ar...

Re: Oktava mk 012 hypercardioid capsules

you'll possibly want the barrel pads too if you don't have em already I don't think the less phat issue will not be too much of a problem with some eq you will prob have to point the null (side in hyper) away from the cymbals rather than the back (like in the cardio) - and that is kind of a PITA and...

Re: Oktava mk 012 hypercardioid capsules

they tighten and loosen the direct sound gets more focused to what you point it at for sure so they need more precise positioning the rear lobe of the pattern will pick up a lil too (like a lopsided figure of eight) so again more finicky with positioning and phase relationships they sound a lil les...
