DPA 4/6 series positioning (and being too sensitive...)
« on: August 06, 2020, 03:01:39 PM »
This may tread into  >:D territory, so PM if you think it's better.

The gist is that I'm listening back to a show I recorded last fall (since quarantine hit I've just had no motivation to dig into post production) and had it where I wanted it. Then I noticed the fact that you can hear me breathing the entire freaking time. I've been using 4061's for a while, and this was maybe the 4th or 5th time using the 6061's. For this particular show I recall it being a weeknight where I was in a bit of a rush to get to the show, so I just went in mic'd up with them on my collar.

Anyway, I've done a similar configuration countless times & never had that happen (maybe I had a cold or something, who the hell knows). Guessing I was just a bit too sloppy and had the mics too close to my face?

Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience with sensitive mics / any advice for making sure this doesn't happen again...?

Thanks!

It's definitely what happened  :facepalm:

I went to the collar method because I didn't like having to keep my head still, but I guess you get what you give...
