Instrument recording techniques

This article documents techniques for recording specific instruments.Recording techniques are very subjective.Please add your techniques with references when possible.

General guidelines

Placing the microphone directly at the speakers cone will give a brighter sound, placing the mic off axis at the cone creates a more "mellow" sound. [1]

Microphone placement

Each technique begins with a bullet point

  • Try a cardioid dynamic microphone placed anywhere from 2 inches to a foot away from the speaker cone.
  • Combine more than one mic and make sure their in phase, or make them out of phase and exploit the out-of-phase characteristic for a different tone.
