I’m currently recording myself in a chapel with my Zoom H2. Does anyone have a suggestion as to the placement of the mic? So far I’ve found that placing the mic closer than about 6 feet to the harp catches the articulation amazingly but gives everything I play a harsh tone and that putting it too far away makes everything mush together, not to mention that I sound very far away even when I put the gain all the way up. Even when I’m relatively close (6-10 feet) the recordings sound as though I’m very far away. I’ve been trying to make my tone as warm as possible so that I can bring the mic closer, but that may only help so much…
Any suggestions – any at all?
