We’ve been sharing our experience/knowledge on car recordings. You may think one just hooks up a microphone and presses record and boom, there’s your recording – but there’s a bit more than that involved. Recording cars is a bit of an art-form, and with years of experience behind us and many many great recordings across a massive variety of vehicles, we feel we may be able to offer some useful tips for others on “driving lessons”.

We go over which sizes and types of microphones you’ll need, how and where to secure your microphones to get the best outcome, and how to get the best sound quality from each environment. Also, what unpredictable dramas you can expect from recording cars, and the sensitivity you need to have to prepare the vehicle owner for the exciting ordeal you’re about to put their car through (and your nice expensive equipment!).

You’ll find the article on Page 20 in the May 2013 issue (Audio Special for automotive recording).
