Microphone Location/ Height Preference Poll
« on: March 27, 2003, 07:05:35 PM »
hey all,

please take a minute to give your choice as to the most important factor contributing to pulling the so called 'phat tape'.  we are talking a Line Array Sound System, an Engineer who knows his game.  any random situation you choose.  indoors, outdoors, small venue, large venue.  

we all know that many factors effect choices as to where and how high to run mics.  just looking for the factor you generally feel to be the most important overall.

thanks much!

I agree with mfrench, got to get there, set up and see what looks best.
It is company policy never to imply ownership in the event of a dildo - We have to use the indefinite article; "A" dildo, never: "YOUR" dildo.

And isn't sanity really just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean all you get is one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, ooh ooh ooh, the sky is the limit!

even i know that there are too many factors and each time is different.  Thats why taping is a lot of fun...it's different everytime and gives you a little challenge to figure out what's gonna work the best...
