Re: Mic and tips for recording flute
For what it's worth, earlyish in my recording days I recorded a flute with an SM58 in my bedroom, plugged into a fostex 4 track which I used as a mixer to record into the stereo input of my Soundblaster soundcard. Applied a bit of EQ and reverb in Acid Pro 3 and it sounded amazing. To this day I listen to that recording and wonder if I could do much better with my now vastly more expensive gear!
To the OP: Don't assume that a new mic will solve all your problems - you might find that what you alredy have is more than adequate for the job!
