XY Mike Configuration
First, I setup 2 C-1000S mic's in an X-Y formation, so they were
nearly touching. Not a bad setup & no phasing that I could hear. I
then recorded a track onto 1 & 2 by using tracklink together with a
hard pan left and right.
Now here's where I did something unusual, I went to the eq section
and dialed down the Low's, Mid's and High's all the way to -12db.
I am using Elixer medium gauge strings and
I found them to be quite bright before I dialed the eq's down.(Great
My guitar was about 8 inches from the center of the mic'sand very
close to the 10th fret.
During playback because I had dialed the eq's nearly out, I had to
slide the fader's all the way up past 0db and also the track level to
9db on top of that. I added some nice reverb, turned up the high
frequency to about 8khz and what I heard was the nicest stereo
sound I have ever recorded in my life.
I also forgot to mention that I inserted the dualcomp/limiter effect.
My new guitar track blends in quite nicely, there are no nuisance
mid's or low's anywhere in the song.
This technique I find works well for a light background guitar, any
lead work I would have done differently but now the Bass and Drum
track also blend in alot better without having frequency conflicts.
Thanks for all your help, and I hope that
this may help others as well.
