Blumlein Fantasy

kirklynch

My first attempt at a Blumlein or Mid/Side recording. This one is actually a mid/side recording as I used a directional mic in combo with a figure 8 ribbon mic set at 90 degrees from the main mic. Thanks to Pat Broaders for the loan of the ribbon mics. Recorded sitting in my shop 12 29 2010

Thanks Kirk! I thought the process might start with old boot leather and assorted hoof parts, mix it with snouts and lips and I’ve got dinner fit for a king

Yep the left track is the strat copy…middle is the guitar in the pic, my first “frankenstien” guitar, a les paul copy (harmony brand?? i think, been too long since i painted and rewired it) and right track is the jackson. Same amp settings on all three but there are subtle differences in tone. You can really tell it when you crank the gain on them. ;)

I wish my listening gear was better–enough to give you some supportive comment for your recording technique. All sounds wonderful here, and the piece itself is emotive and beautiful. Really enjoyed this. I’ve met some fine guitar players on my sojour through internet music–you are one of the finest.

Completely gorgeous, emotive and effortless, Sir Filthy Shirker.
Seems to me there isn’t enough shirking going on, filthy or otherwise.

Thanks Kirk! I’ve been messing with that wah tone for a while. I am using my POD XT live, i think it has…5 wah varations? Something like that, and I had one set up for my main guitar a Jackson Dominion (sweet guitar i love it), and when i went to play the lead i thought, well i just got that strat copy lets give it a whirl. I was shocked how those little pickups blasted into the mix. Pretty neat! I guess you can never judge a guitar by the brand name…just the sound. Later!

Jeebus. And you’re envious of my clean tone? Be serious.

In ‘09 sudar and I were yacking about microphones some googling led us to some very high end mics and a guy that uses them:

I think your recording is better.
