Pro-audio resource centre Soulsound has debuted Recording Acoustic Guitar, a new two-part video series hosted by audio engineer Marcel van Limbeek (Tori Amos, Pet, The Devlins).

In part one, van Limbeek highlights microphone choice for acoustic guitar, taking the viewer through the thought process that led to him choosing an omni condenser mic. He also explores microphone design, explaining how polar patterns are created, why diaphragm size is an important consideration and the proximity effect.

Watch the first video below, then head to the Soulsound website for part two!
