So I stumbled across the dilemma above today playing around in my home/hobby studio. I've almost always dual miced my Carr combo amp at home. I used to use an SM57 and a TLM103 into an Apogee duet. I recently found the TLM103 was not ideal for use in my high ceiling/downtown condo I was writing in so I punted it and picked up an SM7b. Today I was dual micing with the SM7b and the SM57 and played around with duplicating/moving the tracks around and felt just duping the SM7b's track to be two tracks and panning a little yielded a better/clearer sound image. Anyone not even bother dual micing? I suppose it depends what mic's you are using as before I had a condenser which one probably wouldnt want solo on guitars - but the SM7b seems to do a better job by itself. I am also now wondering if I should try a similar technique on my Acoustic - I have a Rode NT5 stereo condenser - I wonder if I could get a better mic like an SM81 and do the same technique. I must say in a home office hobby studio there is something nice about the idea of only fudging with one mic at a time to lay down tracks. Any tips/suggestions/idea's on the above?
