“This week’s lesson was really great, and my mentor had a lot of supplemental info for me about microphone placement. One thing in particular that he cautioned about, in miking cymbals, is that the mic should be placed at the center point of the cymbal’s pivot, so that the sound picked up would have the least variance. Otherwise, the recording would have a wavering sound to it. We talked a lot about phasing problems and how close attention to mic spacing would help eliminate most of the issues.”

Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
