A lot of people when they come to A Sharp Recording Studio ask us about our recording techniques and how we get the sound we do. We love drums and are well known for the sound we can achieve but also get outstanding results on all audio sources. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot technical things to think about in order to get that “sound” you an hear in your head, and having an acoustically treated room, great converters and an SSL desk and a couple of Neve 1073’s and other great mic-pres goes a long way.
When recording multiple sources with multiple microphones you’re sure to have phasing issues and frequency cancellation and before we start to record we test phasing by going through the desk and selecting the phase flips to check signal sources.
Anyway we thought that we would publish this little resource about how we mic-up some of the regular instruments we record at A Sharp and the microphones we use.
