FWIW- I recently watched the 75th birthday salute to Perter Wernick.
( Pete Wernick , aka “Dr. Banjo” Pete Wernick is renowned worldwide for his contributions to bluegrass music: the hot-picking force in several trend-setting bands including Hot Rize, respected author and teacher, songwriter, and long-term President of the International Bluegrass Music Association.)
During the course of the interview, he said he uses a Samson “Meteor” microphone for recording. I was shocked, because a) I have one, and b) it costs as little as $69. 99.
It’s a USB mic that plugs into your computer.
It is threaded at the bottom so you can screw it on to a mic stand.
Finally, how/what you record is only half the battle. The other half is what the listener is using to hear what you’ve recorded.
If they are listening on their cell phone…
One final note: Deering Live has a show coming up that may be right up your alley!
This week we are joined by our good friends John Jennings (Vice President, Royer Labs Microphones) and Matt Coles (Engineer, Compass Sound Studio) to discuss mics, mic placements and to announce the launch of some very cool collaborative videos.
