This video takes place at Strange Weather Brooklyn, and is filmed by Elias Gwinn of Velidoxi and the recording studio documentary series, “Masters From Their Day.” (If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should.)
In this clip, you’ll hear examples of room mics used in a real-world context: Blended in loud over some basic close mics. Once again, we’ll be using a set of microphones provided by Sennheiser, this time focusing on the e914 small-diaphragm condenser mic.
All the clips are presented with no EQ, compression, or effects processing of any kind. If you’d like to hear what these close mics sound like without the room mics blended in, refer to the “Mono Overhead” example from the first episode in this series.
Stay tuned for more free sound and video clips on microphone techniques, and a full-featured drum mic’ing course coming in the near future.
