The M179s are "continuously variable" patterns which is a powerful tool in itself. I have two M179s. They can be used for M-S, Blumlein and beyond. Their shape and size is friendlier than the 6000. I have not used the 6000, but do have the 7000. I am a fan of the M179 because it is quiet and is a wo...

I recently took 16 outs from my Presonus Firestudio/Digimax FS (Samplitude on laptop)...fed that to a Mackie 32*8 and did a quick mix to hear if I liked going out to a console...holy shit...yep. Now I'm scheming to set up my "big DAW" on the output side of the mixer and mixdown to it. Original track...

I once had an EV PL9 sitting near a bass drum during a recording session and it yielded the phattest sound. I'm glad to have run across this Post cuz I just found my PL9 last night and am going to put it on the house kit's bass drum! You might want to find and try a PL9...

I just read the entire thread...about half way through it I got thinking about the technique of mic'ing over your shoulder (the over your head technique). Then I saw two responders mentioned the same thing. This particular technique will minimize your pick noise and keep your tone. You can further "...

I have the NT-4 and it has been a fine microphone. Don't forget to move it around because it is fussy (or shall I say colorful). If you move it while wearing headphones, you'll find sweeter and darker zones based on placement...for what it's worth. :rockin:

Re: Recording an A Capella group

I've recorded many A Capella groups mostly on location, but did produce an A Capella album using a bunch of mics...I prefer the blend of a stereo pair from a distance. The ORTF method coupled with a large diaphragm condensor looks interesting, but it will not yield "true" stereo imaging. Mid/Side re...

Re: How to clean up hissing "s" sounds on vocals

One method for taming recorded sibilence is to sweep a narrow Q from 4kHz to 10kHz while playing the Sssss infected audio and see if you can notch out the bogus frequency...

FS:Two CAD M9 tube mics

I have two CAD M9 tube microphones in excellent condition that I want to sell. I never sold anything on eBay before and really don't have time to figure out how to list on it, so I figured I'd list them here. Here's the story, I used to be a CAD dealer and when these mics first came out I got two of...
