July 2017 - So You Want To Record An Acoustic Guitar?
Audio example to accompany the article
By Paul J. Stamler

Here's the audio example that goes with Paul Stamler's article in the July 2017 issue of RECORDING. In Paul's own words:

"The sound clip that goes with this article, used by permission of the artist, Phil Cooper, is one of my favorite acoustic guitar recordings. Phil was playing a small-bodied Breedlove C2 guitar, and I put an XY pair of cardioid Oktava MK012s over the 15th fret, panning them hard left and hard right. I think I rolled the bass off at 100 Hz to compensate for proximity effect, but there was no other EQ or processing used."
