T5 - Mic It & Record It!

Ian Corbett, Kansas City Kansas Community College - Kansas City, KS, USA; off-beat-open-hats recording & sound reinforcement

Too many resources emphasize “instant” miking solutions, and tell the aspiring recording engineer to simply “mic it this way.” This often results in sounds that have to be significantly electronically processed to force them into place during mixing, degrading the integrity of the sound and making the mix process longer and more difficult than it otherwise might be. Topics discussed in this presentation will include the effects microphone technologies, mic techniques, and the recording room have on the recorded sound, and how they can be explored and exploited to capture the sound you actually need for the mix, improving your mix, and making mixing an easier and quicker process.
