February is Instrument Miking Month at RECORDING! In this issue, we bring you lots of great content on miking for stage and studio, with a combination of insightful interviews and a slate of great reviews.
We talk with ace engineer Mike Pappas on a recent recording gig with Grammy(R)-nominated rock band DeVotchKa, and touch base with RECORDING's educational video creator Michael Schulze for an in-depth refresher course on miking drums for maximum impact. New author Kevin King brings us cool tricks for getting great simulated stereo recordings from a single mono mic. And in interviews surrounding the recent recording of the Clare Fischer Big Band's latest album, we pick up great miking and mixing tricks for all sorts of instruments from the engineers on the project, including Grammy(R)-winner Rafa Sardina.
A miking issue wouldn't be complete without mic reviews, and we're aiming to bring you a whole slate of exciting new mics from AKG, Audio-Technica, DPA Microphones, Lewitt, Royer Labs, and Shure, as well as other product reviews from Radial Engineering, Sonodyne, Zoom, and more.
All this comes with our regular columns, Readers' Tapes with Marty Peters, and more. If you're heading to the 2013 NAMM Show in Anaheim to pick up a copy in person, or even if you're just waiting by the mailbox, you'll be thrilled and enlightened by the February RECORDING!
