"Great tips from all and I thank you for them. I plan on trying all of the techniques once I get my little studio set up. And I was "shocked" to see shock mounts in the $250.00 range on music equipment sites. :-)"
"There is a technique called "working the mic" that the folks in radio use. Just like mic'ing an amp, move your head around the mic to find the optimum spot. Where the P's don't pop. Angled to one side or the…"
"I've been experimenting with vocals lately, in the past most of my recording has been exclusively instrumental but I'm branching out a bit. I'm a Pretty BaD PoPPer so that's something I'm addressing. I've found that…"
"Happy Holidays to you too Terry!

"Fran, no matter where I place this small condenser mic, it just doesn't give me a very good result. It could be just the particular mic I have, or some other variable, but the large condenser mic works well for me. As with all mics…"
"Phil, what is the issue with your small diaphragm condenser? What don't you like about it?
The common "wisdon" about the difference between large D and small D mics is mostly garbage. There are LD mics with flat response and SD mics…"
"Terry, the main thing to know about condenser mics vs dynamics is the greater sensitivity they exhibit. This means that at the same preamp gain setting the condenser will capture a much louder recording. Many folks complain that their condenser…"
"Hi, Terry! Happy holidays!
I've got 2 condenser mics, a pencil type - small condenser, and a large condenser mic. The pencil mics are supposed to have better freq range, than the large condenser, but for me I use the large…"
"So I got a nice condenser mic for my b'day and Santa is bringing some studio monitors (I hope!) and I'm looking forward to making better recordings than I have. Any one have any suggestions about using the condenser mic since I've…"
