Finding the sweet spot

Hello everyone,

This good morning I'll keep my update brief since I've been up all night.

Whenever you put a microphone on anything, you should try to put your ear in the exact spot the microphone's diaphragm will be. This is the best taste you'll get of how the track will actually sound, and it'll help you find the elusive sweet spot much quicker. Be careful with amps though...

PS - I was GOING to post an article on how to make your own gobos, but my drill broke and I couldn't get the example gobos built fast enough, maybe for tomorrow though ;)
