When the subject is out of the polar pattern of the mic the audio quality changes drastically. 08-25-2011 #2. On vs Off axis mic placement. IK Obi. explainations only usually leave me asking the same questions. Gabriel Stanford-Reisinger means “off the speakers’ mouth axis”! Listen to the demo here. Point the cardioid mic at the source, and place the bidirectional mic underneath or above with the capsules pointing 90° off axis from the source. It can sound better - try it: vary the mic position and angle. The pop filter should always be employed when close miking the mouth. I went to THE STUDIO today and dropped an unhealthy $165 on recording a 1.5 minute demo clip. You can see the difference in response patterns as frequency goes from high (10kHz) to low (125Hz). I'm almost completely satisfied with the guitar tone, but I wanted to get the opinions of more weathered veterans in the art. What does it mean when a mic is on axis or off axis with another mic or by itself when recording? The 6-dB down point for the SuperCardioid mic is at about 45 degrees off-axis. The guitars were recorded with an sm57 -> JCM 800 2203 Off axis. The microphone design must be very clear in its off axis response for this to work. Sound takes time to travel. The subject call this "the magic circle" what he is speaking about is the polar pattern in which the mic performs best. There are two axes: 1. most answers are about being “off the mic’s axis” 2. Mic placement: Off-axis and On-axis Sign in to disable this ad i hear the terms on axis and off axis all the time and i think i know what we're talking about here, but is there any good resource online that might be able to show a diagram or paint a clear picture? To create the stereo effect you’re going for, you need to duplicate the signal from your bidirectional mic, invert the phase on one signal, and hard pan each of them so you hear both sides of the mic. off axis mic placement. A more common description is simply on and off mic. When a microphone is placed on axis, it means it is aligned to the center of the radiating sound source. Advantages? At 10kHz there is almost complete rejection behind the microphone, while at 125Hz it yields a figure-8 pattern, with 18dB of attenuation behind the microphone. thanks for your time. This video demonstrates on and off axis mic placement. Have your assistant move the mic in and out from the voice, about 2 inches to 6 inches while the performer is rehearsing and listen for the proximity warmth boost as it balances to consonant brightness. When I mic an amp with a 57, I almost always (actually, it is always) turn it slightly off axis. I like what it does to the high end and really balances the sound for what I do. The Neumann KM184 has very even off-axis response, small diaphragm mics tend to have better off-axis response than large diaphragm mics The Shure SM57 is very different and follows the pattern found in most cardioid mics of where at low frequencies the response is more towards omni and polar response narrows at the high end.
