Quote of the Day

“I just make sure that the sound that is being recorded is as close to the sound I want as possible. I don’t want to rely on the engineers to monkey around with the eq afterwards—unless it’s an effect that you’re trying to get.”- Leon Redbone

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.)
