Incredible performance. I'm blown away by the nuances. Great to hear a great performer on a great instrument. What mic(s) are you using? Captures the detail very well.

Thanks so much, Zach.  I use an old AT3035 along with a more recent TLM103.  I really think any decent condenser mic will do.

What kind of compressor are you using? I really struggle to get my percussion and playing at a similar volume. Your track is extremely even without pumping.

I can't really remember to have used any compression I guess :D :)

Sounds great guys. More natural than most fingerstyle recordings out there. Did you use your compressors as well? The compression sounds very natural, more like a limiter than anything.

Cool piece and great performance! I'm not sure what you record into, software or portable recorder, but check your left and right balance - The recording pulls like 4-6 DB to the left side. Great job otherwise!

Man, you guys really like those P84s. They sound great though, I'd love a pair at some point.

We do! It's tough to not love em, they sound incredible and are very placement friendly, thus quick and easy to use. We actually just shot a XY miking technique video yesterday featuring the P84s which should be live in a couple of weeks. And I know you know this but we'd be glad to send out a pair on demo! Shoot me an email when the time is right or if you want to talk more about them. travis(at)soundpure.com

I can't respond for some reason, but the Oktava is unmodded and the preamp is a Focusrite ISA828.

This album was mostly tracked live. I'm assuming this drum track is from the small, in studio live concert they put on. Crazy good isolation. Then again, close miked kick, snare, hat and toms and really close overheads ought to help.
