Notebooks by Derek:
Selecting the right mic is the first step to capturing great sound. By reviewing commonly used mic's and their unique characteristics, you’ll know when to reach for an industry classic and when to try something different in order to amplify great sound.
Although mic'ing a band varies between personal preference, style and instrument, there are general principles that become the building blocks for personal interpretation of mic selection and placement.
