Microphone Shootout: Guitar Amps

Hi, I’m Matt Gordon at 1092 Studios here in Nashville, Tennessee.

Today we’re going to be doing a microphone shootout on a guitar cab.

So for this shootout, every microphone is going through the studio’s API 1608 console. There’s no compression or EQ added. The signal you’re hearing is coming straight from the mic.
