Chris Rose Posted May 2, 2006 Share Posted May 2, 2006 Ive been searching historic threads on this subject, but am still a bit puzzled. i.e., an inexpensive method of digitally recording a concertina. I would like to record my new Wakker W-A2, Amboyna flat ended and post it. However, Ive found that some of the interesting overtones are simply not captured. I can get the metal reed sound that a harmonica makes recorded, but the instrument also has an organic reed sound like an oboe as well, that just doesnt come through the recording. It is the latter sound that, to me, is the interesting and pleasing aspect of the instrument. Ive got two microphones. A Sony stereo mic that I use with a Sony MiniDisc. It has an AA battery. I also have a Shure-SM58 mic that sounds better than the Sony, but the recording lacks volume. This mic does not have a battery. I also need to go from a 1/4 inch plug to an 1/8 inch through a reducer when using this mic. If I want to use the Shure, do I need to get some sort of a pre-amp between the mic and the computer? Also, is the resulting sound quality also a function of the computer sounds card? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
