I received a new Golden Age R1 Active MKIII Ribbon microphone today and wanted to test it against my trusty AKG microphone, the first test was with a mandolin. Turns out, the two mics complement each other very nicely.
The song was just a jam, at first it didn’t sound like a blues song, but the bass line just had to go bluesy – its what worked instantly, and while I had no subliminal or liminal idea for that, I never argue with any of my instruments. They take me where they will.
Speaking of an ethereal spirit in control, while this song could have been called “Haunted Train” or better yet, “Ghost Train”, I already did trains (and coffins!), so lets keep it cameras while we are in this series and mindset.
