The Best Way To Record Acoustic Guitar – Easy Home Recording
I think it’s best to start with 1 microphone and get the most balanced tone you can with it.
I demonstrate how to record with:
– Condenser Microphones
– Dynamic Microphones
– Small Diaphragm / Pencil Condensers
Start by warming up, relaxing and setting up your equipment. Be sure to turn off studio monitors when recording and also turn off your WiFi, electric heaters and put your phone into airplane mode – All of these things eliminate interference!
On your recording software adjust the buffer length of your audio interface.
Shorter values allow you to have lower latency but can often be too CPU intensive.
Select a longer value and choose direct monitoring on your interface instead.
Then set up your microphone – Spend a lot of time finding the best position and keep recording and listening back, this is critical. Avoid the sound hole and try to avoid getting closer than 6 or 7 inches. There is almost no need to ever push a microphone so close. The best recordings I’ve got are from over a foot away, every time :)

About In The Mix
In The Mix is all about simplifying the recording, production, mixing and mastering process and helping you unlock your creativity. No matter which DAW you use or what equipment you have, I’m determined to help you succeed. I try to share as much as I can about the industry and give an insight into the world of music production and the business behind it by showing you how to release and sell your music online.
Being an FL Studio Power User I also focus tutorials on getting the most out of FL Studio, My DAW of choice.
Micahel Wynne is a recording artist and mixing engineer with a passion for teaching (and instant ramen).
In 2015 I discovered my enthusiasm for music and audio; I learned how to record and produce songs in my university student room with a just cheap laptop and FL Studio. After several months of working in audio sessions between school assignments, I decided to leave uni with a 2-year engineering diploma to pursue a career in music. I wanted to learn everything I could about the industry and the artistic process, so I started making original music as half of the duo “Miavono”.
In late 2016 I began my journey on YouTube, sharing my knowledge and experiences with audio in the form of tutorials on “In The Mix”. I quickly grew a community of over 120,000 producers, artists, and audio professionals, a group of people whose passions aligned with mine. Last year I built my own home studio from the ground up in my back garden, set in the rural highlands of Scotland, and have since been supported by and involved with some of the greatest people in the industry.
