It's always worth a try, and if you don't like it you can just mute the track that the condenser is on and just use the 57.hmm ive been wanting to try that...
recording with my SM57 and a friend's MXL 990 condenser mic. how would that compare to just recording with the SM57?
I switched my 57 for an audix too. Much cleaner. Now I know foh hears what I hearMartinCliffe said:I use my SM57s for toms. Replaced them with Audix i5s for live guitar cabs, and for recording I use a combination of Rode NT1A condenser and SE Electronics R1 ribbon mics.
To determine placement, I used headphones plugged into my mixer. Just run a signal through the amp, even something simple like the buzz from an instrument cable not plugged into anything, or a loop, then move the 57 around until you get the sound you like through the headphones.I move mine around until I find the sound I like best.
