Saxophone Session!

Posted: November 8, 2011 in In the Studio

Fridays Saxophone went swimmingly! Unfortunately, The M-Audio sound card  and valve microphones were not available as they were being used elsewhere. Luckily I brought my Edirol UA-25  which gave us 96khz recording, but the only mic available was the SM-57. So we had to record the Sax using just that! So I simply placed the mic directly infront of the sound hole at about 45 degree angle and about 10 inches away.  Obviously the mic is direct and didn’t get the nice full warm sound I was after, but ‘Hey’ you have to make best with what you have sometimes, I will simply have to play with it in post production and try to get the best possible sound I can get.
