Awesome pack jhunger! I especially like the first track, you inspire me to rent some mics from uni and record some acoustic guitar (something I never do). Actually, do you DI a guitar or mic it up, and if so, What kind of mics/miking techniques do you usually use? I understand if you don’t want to disclose your secrets on here! :)

Thanks for the compliments! And I don’t have any recording secrets I mind disclosing :), though to be honest I’m always trying new things so I’m not sure if I have one technique to point to, and also I can’t be sure exactly what I used for this song (I should get organized and write things down…)

I can tell you that I never record direct – just can’t deal with the sound of it. Maybe I’ve just never had a good acoustic pickup? Also, I don’t often record stereo – I just never seem to get good results, probably because my room is subpar currently. Normally I’m using an SDC on my guitar (my favorite currently is a modded Oktava MK012 from OktavaMod) about 18 inches away from the sound hole, vertically placed near the bottom of the hole and horizontally about where the neck and the body meet, but angled toward the hole. Though small tweaks in that placement make a huge difference so it’s good to experiment there. For pres I’m using either a Great River or Forssell 500 series module – for some of my earlier stuff I was using an RNP which is also great. IMO the difference between the GR/Forssell and the RNP is very subtle and probably not necessary, but I do recommend at least having a channel or two with a decent pre like an RNP , Golden Age, Black Lion, ISA One, etc., because you will hear a big difference upgrading from an interface stock pre. But the mic will make more of a difference overall. For steel string I’ve had decent success with an SM81 and the Oktava, for nylon or uke I usually prefer something brighter and I’m normally using an AKG C451B . I got a couple of KM184s last year, but they don’t sound that great on my steel string and I actually prefer the AKG on the nylons – goes to show you that the more expensive mics might not be the best at all things.

But I’m still not satisfied with the sound and am still trying new things. My main struggle currently is my recording space, to be honest. Upgrading that will probably make more of a difference than any mic/pre combination.

As I was looking through the Audio Jungle Marketplace for instrumentals. I came across your work and instantly found a great source for the audio in my video projects. Thank you for offering such rich sound. I’ll be back to purchase soon.
