Looking for a great way to compare two vocal mics, in order to choose the best for your vocal tracks? Try this technique, as described by master engineer Ken Scott (and taken from an interview done with Ken by our own Mitch Gallagher:
“[I’d always use] one of two microphones, a U 87 or a C414. I’d place both up, tight together, at a 45-degree angle, and have the singer sing between them. I could immediately hear which would be best for the voice, and it avoided problems with p-pops.”
Ken also offer pointers about recording guitar here!
