Recording Acoustic Guitar
« on: April 15, 2017, 11:48:52 AM »
hi group,

tanong ko sana paano mag record ng malinis na tunog para sa acoustic guitar? lalo na kung 'finger plucking'?
ang gusto ko sana mawala o mabawasan pa yung 'hiss' o 'noise/noisefloor' tama ba ang tawag dun.

kaso , behringer c1 at 2i2 lang ang gamit. kaya sana hindi maging limitado sa gamit ang inaasam. wala din pala pickup mga gitara. pero pag sa vocals, maayos naman at parang malinis yung 'noise floor' niya kahit icompress o i-exaggerate ang highs kaya nagtataka ako sa gitara.

sa nylon, medyo ok so-so, pero sa steel parang malakas ang hiss? dahil sa vibrations kaya ng 'steel' string?

sa unplugged laptop nakakabit lahat
naka tapat mic sa 12th fret - halos 6 inches layo
sa van din nagsubok mag setup. sinbukang takpan mga bintana 'unprofessionally' (hindi umaandar sasakyan)
2 subok din sa interface, yung gain knob halos patay (8oclock at isa, sa suggested 1-2oclock.)


may setup din akong ginawa sa cabinet nakalagay mic sa gitna ng mga naka hanger na damit, kaso hindi ko pa nagawan tapatan ng gitara.
 
sa acoustics kaya o sa gamit din o parehas? siguro concern ko ay kung 'na squeeze out to the best of its capabilities' ang resources ko? salamat sa mga maipapayo! salamat group!

tama ka sa lahat. improving your noise floor means upgrading your studio isolation, a better mic and interface.

post ka sample wav

i used to record with a pair of behringer c2, taas ng noise floor

then a pair of superlux pra628 or 638 condensers, much better noise floor

then rode nt4 - yun na, jabonga! nawala yung noise at parang 3d yung tunog ng acoustic

nag sm81 pair din ako for a short time, they were fine but the rode nt4 was more coherent and the guitar sounded like 1 instrument instead of the weird spaced effect we get when we mic two separate parts of the guitar.

presonus firestudio project yung interface

bali mas magandang investment mic muna? sobrang ganda siguro ng 3d sounding...

'you get what you pay for' nga siguro yung c1

yung mga audio technica mics? may  feedback kayo? pero hindi naman ako interesado kumuha, curious lang

You can cancel some of the noise with plugins, kagaya sa reaper i use "reafir" to remove noise. Satisfied naman ako.


Pero siyempre mas maganda yung better studio and gear kaso mas mahal haha. Sa ngayon diskarte lang talaga.
