    Re: Mandolin Recording Mic Setup

    Is the room treated?

    That is one of the most under-rated but important factors of all in getting a good result.

    Mic position is next. Try moving the mic(s) around while checking the results. If...

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    I think one reason the KSM's are popular is because they are very tough, well-engineered and stand up well to outdoor/live use. They are also very consistent. All mics have their own 'sonic...

    Re: Does Praying Help Find Your Blue Chip?

    Prayer is more effective when accompanied by a sacrifice or burnt offering. Consider giving up on social media for a week. Alternatively, set fire to a banjo. This will impress the gods of lost picks.

    Keep it simple.

    Any decent tuner should pick up both the 12th fret and the harmonics, yes. I think the value of a good tuner comes in when checking whether you need to make further small adjustments to the bridge or...

    I do not get the love for ear trumpet. They certainly look cool, and if you have not heard MUCH better then you would think it is great. But I have a real world experience that makes me a doubter:

    Re: Best Bluegrass Band Single Microphone?

    Three points:

    1) There is no such thing as a 'best' microphone. There are a lot of good ones, some superb ones, and which is 'best' is very much open to personal taste, your technical...

    Re: Ribbon Mics

    The 2i2 has different, cheaper preamps than the 18i20 - or so I've read. Never A/B'd the two, but have seen some complaints about the 2i2. I have the 18i20 and have had no problem getting good...

    As a community we can do better. The titling of this thread makes me sad. It was irresponsible and made without a single simple fact about what really occurred.
