    He seems to be pretty happy .. He gets to do a lot of documentaries and current affairs. He wasn't happy when he was in Mediacorp - overwork/underpaid. I think now his boss is better.

    thats good to hear. and not surprising that he is making more money than u, he's a boss. even docus & CA stuffs r shrinking in budget from MDA, so less money there again.

    sorry to thread starter, i OT'ed.

    take for example miking a kickdrum.
    the usual would be an AKG D12, D112 or a Shure Beta52.

    we have used a Beyerdynamic M88 for kick.
    that mic is originally intended for vocals & has a hypercardoid pattern.

    also miking of an Er Hu.
    we have used a AKG D112 & gottan great results.
    so end of the day, let your ears be the judge.

    there was this other time we tried miking a piano with GT tube mics, AKG 414, Neumann U87 for a live sound event.
    none seemed to work.
    end of the day we popped in a simple cheap Audio Technica & viola!!
    we got the sound we wanted.

    do not let the specs get too much in your way.
    were you at the drum mic-ing course at "forgot-the-place-name-but-it's-next-to-parliament-house" gallery?

    i thought sae used to have a good name, until too many grads flooded the sound market and happily used "Sound Engineer" in their name cards.

    Overused. Maybe they are unsound.

    so, is there anybody conducting a basic audio studio course or the companies that sells audio cards like Protools or Creative conducting any - free or otherwise?

    Courses here quite useless one lah.. Mostly taught by incompetent people. Just grab some US magazines like Mix, Recording, Electronic Musician etc and pick up from there.. You'll probably learn more of the right thing.

    not really lah.
    not all....

    still need hands on.
    book knowledge is not sufficient.

    it is a technical art.
    head knowledge required but a good sense of hearing & an artistic mind still matters.

    Me too.. I've got a Roland VS-890 digital multitrack, some behringer condensers, mic preamps and gates, a Roland SC-D70 and Calkwalk Home Studio and I haven't been touching them for ages too.. No time to play with so many things..

    speakers for live sound is a whole new world again.
    the typical mid honky sound of a JBL to the details of a d&b to the all rounded Kling & Frietag, to Nexo's bass to the unique caharacter of Apogees & Meyer or the dry Martin.

    same thing with ppl arguing Countryman or DPA for theatres.
    and the RF reception of a Beyer as opposed to a Shure.
    I'm not surprised.. more than half of them are deaf anyway.. hehehe.. Sometimes when I walk into a shopping mall, I very surprised why the "sound engineer" doing the show is able to handle such intense SPL levels. It's like I have to plug my ears even when I'm more than 4 meters away from the speakers!

    As for mics, sometimes knowing the frequency response do help in certain problematic live sound venues.
