#76: LDC on Accordion

Angie Oase plays her heirloom accordion for this large diaphragm condenser mic audition. There are recording titans up against a few relative newcomers. Hear for yourself if there is a new page to be written in the Go-To-Mic handbook. The mics are set 24″ (61 cm) from the source, cardioid pattern, flat and no attenuation, for this session.

Be sure to use the “Listen Blind” feature under “Options” to avoid preconceived notions on which mic you’ll like.

NOTE: There is a BED Reverb track where all the mics were fed into both a small room verb and a little delay to allow you to hear the tracks as they might appear in a mix.
