Lovely melody. Possibly the best recording of nylon guitar I've heard on this forum to date. Mind sharing how it's done?

Hi Ghostgum, thanks a lot for your nice comment - very glad you like my tune and recording!!

I'm in a tiny bedroom - the guitar is a Takamine Hirade TH-90 which I've had for years, a mixture of Aquila strings (1-2-3) and D'Addario EJ45C Silver Covered (4-5-6), I'm using a Microtech Gefell M300 small condenser mic pointing towards the neck around frets 11-12ish to avoid the boomy lows from the guitar's sound hole. The mic goes into a Golden Age Pre-73 DLX preamp and a Golden Age Comp-54 compressor - from those the signal goes to my MOTU 828ES soundcard and into Logic Pro X on an i9 iMac.
In Logic I roll off a lot of the low end and a little bit of the mids on the nylon guitar using Fabfilter Pro Q2 EQ - via 2 separate Aux channels I mix in a bit of Liquidsonics "Cinematic Rooms Prof" and "Seventh Heaven Pro", Mastering is with IK T-Racks MAX Suite always rolling off everything below 100 Hz to kill the worst mud & rumble!

Hope that helps - best regards, Carl

Ghostgum - if you're interested I've just put another nylon guitar tune on Soundcloud called "Love Lost", done this morning!

Sorry I can't put a link here on the forum as Love Lost does not have any BB on it - look up Carl Mogensen on Soundcloud!!

Best, C

Beautiful playing.
Nicely put together.
BIAB is an amazing thing but, nothing beats playing your own instruments.

Enjoyed it!

I very much appreciate your nice comments on my sound Ghostgum - if you look at websites like Gearslutz.com I think you'll find that my setup (as home studios go) is quite modest, I have acquired over a long period of time enough good quality gear to produce the best sound I can! You can of course spend countless thousands on equipment and still get a poor sound - but after all it's really the music that counts, eh!

Thanks again for listening - and to "Love Lost" as well!

All the best there in AUS, Carl
