The Beat Goes On (Part 2)

This post is a follow up to The Beat Goes On: Part 1  Here I have taken our Heil PR30 top firing mics and recorded them from under the crash cymbals and then again from overhead. This was recorded live in the Nothview Auditorium from our Venue Profile direct into ProTools. The audio is raw: without compression, or EQ.




Crash Mics Under

The Heil PR30 mics are amazing. I have actually come to like them even more than our Earthworks Cardiod SR25’s I had been using.

Crash Mics Over

I like the sound of using them in this pattern. The warmth of the Heil mics here too is astounding. Listening to the two recording below I think actually prefer this sound. So Now I am on a mission to get the under mics to sound like this. I just don’t think I can give up the clean look mic-ing under the cymbals is giving me.
