Quote of the Day

“Print things. Obviously, you’re going to have to print effects on with guitars and drum machines, because you can’t tie up your only piece of outboard gear on your drums. If it sounds good going down, by all means, print it! Print a stereo mix with the effects if it sounds good. Commit, commit!”- Tom Lord Alge

3:1 rule/4:1 rule

When recording with multiple mics in close proximity, you can avoid phase problems by separating the mics by at least 3 times the mic-to-source distance. (see picture) For instance, if a mic is one foot away from its sound source, then no other mic should be closer than three feet from this first mic. (See also 10 dB rule.)
