🎀 Mastering Mic Positions For Mockups

🎚️ production May 23, 2023

When it comes to adding roominess to your mockups, it's not just about reverb--it's about depth.

Depth can be simulated by sending instruments to shorter convolution reverbs, but the best method is to use the mic positions within your VST.

These instruments were recorded with real players in real rooms. Sometimes the simplest answer is the best πŸ™‚

In this (slightly older) video, I walk through how I handle mic positions in my mockups for winds, brass, strings, and percussion. Hope you learn something useful!
