K2 SM57
« on: September 26, 2005, 03:30:47 PM »

High guys, i posted this in the wrong spot before.
Im thinking of tracking a strong female vocalist with a rode K2
and an SM57, in stereo. Can you guys suggest something special for me. What are the advantages and disadvantages in doing this.


Cheers

depends what sound your going for but try this...
have both mics up to the vocalist, VERY close to one another, almost touching (end to end)but on their sides, if you know what I mean, not in the traditional upright manner but on their sides.
Then pan each mic hard left and right and you prob will have to invert the phase of one channel to get it sounding correct i.e the stereo imaging.
Hope that helps man.

i would give them the 57 to hold or tell them to use it like they would a live mic then put the K2 about a foot or two away from them. i would then have do the take enuf times for two golden takes. then mix the two best takes from each of the mics. mix them both to taist.
