I am curious if we as a community could begin an audio technique / education thread?

Like we could start with one topic such as EQ’ing, Compression, recording Ukelele (haha) or something and then each person could share their approach and theories. Maybe 1 topic a month or bi-weekly. :)

I know this stuff can be found throughout the internet, but it seems like it might help.

Thoughts?

Great idea! There are many experienced musicians and sound engineers on AJ. We can share to each other.

I think it’s a great idea as well. I’d even like to see an entire forum section on it. I know there are a lot of experts here, but I for one am learning on the job as it were, and love to get insights from other producers, as well as share a few of my own.

BTW I normally record ukulele with a single bright mic (C451B), about 6 inches away and barely off axis. But I’d love to hear how others do it :)

+1 for a whole section. There’s so many different topics covered over the broad subject of mixing and recording.

I only have 1 microphone which is an SM57. So I have to rely totally on EQing, lots of layers, and different miking approaches to get any real difference in sound.

It’s a small diaphragm condenser mic – it’s got a brightness about it that makes it harsh on a lot of sources but I like the airy feel it gives the ukulele. I don’t know much at all about recording amplifiers, though.

However, I was mostly just making a joke in reference to vaisnava’s ukulele reference and didn’t mean to derail this into the “recording ukulele” thread! Maybe I’ll start one of those in a bit to get a nice mix of recording advice and the typical anti-uke vitriol.

Well it seems like the ukele recording techniques might be a good place to start actually. I don’t have a uke or mic, so if people who have done it can share their techniques and their tracks featuring their technique I think that would be a good way to get the ball rolling. A new thread would be appropriate. ;)
