    Hi Jesse, I am new to the PLAP

    I am experimenting with violin recording and would like to know how your recording has progressed since you posted. I record my son for some streaming purposes. I am experimenting with different mics and found a ribbon option to be the smoothest, for now. I had to deaden the room to eliminate the bad acoustics, which I then add again in post. As Guido said, get the mic away from the violin to get more of the timbre of the instrument and less of the contact sounds. In my case, this was not possible because of the room. My mics are about 1.3 m away. I found that I have to take out/ tweak a lot of the highs.
