I decided to go ahead and upload the samples that I was talking about in the previous post. To recap, I used two Octava MKL 2500′s and placed them here:
This second mic was rotated to make the different sounds you will hear in the clip. The first four bars you hear are with the mic facing forward (like the picture), the next four are with the mic turned at a 90 degree angle away from the kick, and the third is with the mic turned 180 degrees away from the snare. You can hear how the sound of the snare changes with each turn. I ran both mics through a Trident channel strip, and gave a hefty boost at 50 hz and 4k, and filtered out everything above 12k. Compression was also used.
Again, I was going for a particular “sound” and it wouldn’t be suitable for a lot of applications. But for what I’m working on, it works quite well! Thanks for reading.
