Recording finger picking
on: June 21, 2021, 04:25:40
I seem to end up with a "swishy swishy" kind of sound where the fingers touch the strings.

SDC ( AT Pro 37 ) and I've tried pointing different places.

Maybe it's not the worst thing? I mean plenty of realism there but more than I can EQ out.

Any advice?

iF YOUR GUITAR  HAVE A BUILD-INN BRIDGE MIC YOU CAN TRY THE OLD TECH WITH LEFT CHANNEL AS EXTERNAL MIC RECORDING AND RIGHT CHANNEL AS CABLE RECORDING FROM INTERNAL MIC AND THEN MIX THEN TWO CHANNELS TO ONE SIGNAL.

OR

IF YOU HAVE AN MULTI-BAND EQ THEN TRY TO SEE IF YOU CAN CATCH THE UNWANTED SOUND AND THEN MINIMIZE OR REMOVE THE FREQUENCY FROM THE SOUND PICTURE. DIFFICULT TO EXPLAIN BUT HERE YOU GHAVE A YOUTUBE LINK:

@Bill If you are good at recording then this might be just the way your guitar sounds.. I would suggest to put the microphone the as far as you can from where the left hand fingers go without losing the quality of the closeness to the guitar. Maybe you have new strings that cause more noise than usual? My best idea is to put the microphone the farthest right to you as you can.

Thanks @Krysoe  ... I might be on the right track.

Good point @Haim Shim  .... I can put it farther away .... but then if I turn up the gain am I defeating the purpose? I wonder.
