| Since I'm a little new to this, I'm hoping the forum can validate my
findings. The story:
I have a Sony D8, a pair of MXL 604's, and an M-Audio Audio Buddy
(just bought). I hooked them up for the first time tonight with the
mics as overheads on drums to test that it all would work. On the
first recording, I noticed considerable distortion (I'm using the line
in on the D8 ). So, I experimented a bit with the levels...turning
them almost to zero on the Audio Buddy & below "4" on the D8. This
alleviated most of the distortion with the exception of the low tom
and floor tom. After reading this:
...and a few other posts, it looks like I need an attenuator. Will
this do the trick?
I guess I should state my purpose. I don't plan on recording drums
this way, but rather plan on putting together a rig to record from the audience in a few weeks (http://www.wakarusa.com).
