Quote of the Day

“If you simply focus on listening, the session will go smoother. The deadly “failure to communicate” occurs when you use the talkback switch as an interrupt switch...During the points of confusion and disagreement that will come up during a session, you must not abuse this power to interrupt.”- Dave Moulton

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.)
