Quote of the Day

“Basically—my board is an old Neve ’86—there is no equalizing, just a whole slew of modules. We don’t need equalizing because the sound is so great. If the miking is in the correct positions, the sound is good.”- Kitaro

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.)
