General Issues

  • I have one Radial Pro direct box (passive). I am unsure whether to plug the acoustic guitars into the direct box, or directly into the RME UFX or the Behringer ADA8200.
  • DPA spec and order cables.
  • Mark mic placements on floor using tape for the above recording scenarios
    • I have a roll of gaff tape, but after 6 months it leaves a gooey mess. What other tape could we use for a semi-permanent placement?
    • We only need a few feet of tape for this purpose.
    • 3-4 different colors would be helpful; this would allow a color-coded mic placements for each recording scenario that requires at least one microphone.
