Recording Acoustic Guitar (Part 2) | Soulsound

In Part One of this masterclass, Marcel concentrates on microphone choice for Acoustic Guitar.

He takes us through his thought process that lead to him choosing an omni condenser mic for this application at this time - it’s all about capturing the timbre of this particular guitar. In true Marcel style, he delves deeply into microphone design, how polar patterns are created, why diaphragm size is an important consideration and the proximity effect.

Even if you're a seasoned studio engineer, this is worth a watch for new insights.
