iMix Acoustic Guitar Pickup

Better Versatility with an Expanded Tonal Range

Expand your versatility and tonal range by combining two sources in one system. Capturing the guitar with the strengths of two sources empowers you to dial in a more complex sound and provides versatility for a better quality performance in a variety of environments. An internally mounted preamp allows you to send separate signals in stereo or seamlessly mix both sources with a soundhole mounted remote.

Options:
iMix™
iMix™ Classical (for Nylon-stringed guitars)

Peter Frampton was born in England and began playing guitar and piano as a lad. He was still only 19 when he formed the band Humble Pie with guitarist Steve Marriott. Five albums later, Frampton went solo. Read More »

Musical production question: recording vocals

by heinsonlive

I have a phantom powered condenser microphone and I want to know how to get it to work and connect to a computer sound card. I have a notebook computer and think I need to get some type of external sound card- basically something better than the factory card I have now. If I won't be able connect it to a sound card, what do I need to get it to record directly to my editing software, Adobe Audition 3.0, with very high quality? Trying to get a truly professional sound for a song I've written.
Here is the mic:

Also I've got a AudioTechnica battery powered condenser thats pretty good for overhead mic or acoustic.
Battery powered mics are electret condensers. Phantom powered mics are usually regular diaphram condenser. Its a slightly different mic.
Some electret condensers are very good, but these usually also run on phantom power too and I find they sound better with actual phantom power. The AKG C1000 is sort of an industry standard for certain applications and its battery powered.

Neumann Neumann KM184 MT Cardioid Studio Condenser Miniature Microphone with clip and windscreen - Black
Musical Instruments (Neumann)
  • Detailed small diaphragm mic that can be used as a spot or overhead mic
  • Excellent for recording situations when it is necessary to attenuate off-axis sound (mainly from the rear) from other nearby instruments.
  • Transformerless circuitry
  • Low self-noise with wide dynamic range and very high immunity to electromagnetic interference.
