Did someone already used it for kick out miking?
used it on the inside a lot. attack is more natural than with a typical kick drum mic also a bit more thin tho. a bit more bleed than with a d6 which can be critical when you do drastic boosts with it (which you'd probably need in a metal context). nowadays i use a re20 which is sth in between a regular kick mic and sth like the sm7.
never really tried it as out mic
Remember while back some dudes posted results with sm57 (probably one of them even removed reso head) and sounded really grate.
I find it way too thin sounding although it would probably work nicely in conjunction with a sub-kick. It just doesn't have the balls.
I have a drum recording soon, nothing serious really but I wont have a proper kick mic and my SM7 is the only mic that could do the trick. Will see if I can get something cool with it. If so, I'd post a clip.
I think you'll be fine with just a bit of "tweakage".
Here's a quick comparison. SM7 raw, D112 raw, D6 raw then SM7 eq'ed and blended with a subkick sample. I actually prefer the processed SM7.
(sorry for the weird resonance)
Thanks a lot man Yeah SM7 sounds more than decent! Damn, the D6 sounds great.......
I regret my e901+e602, they gave really good results but I was in need of money so I sold them. For some reason I was thinking that the SM7 would give similar vibe than the RE20 (which I've never used myself, heard clips only) but it has less bottom end obviously. Anyway, it'll do the job for this session.
Never tried it to mic the kick, however iv'e used it many times as snare bottom mic. When you solo the track you can literally not hear the rest of the kit. As if it was a trigger, only it's not...
It can sound fantastic with a subkick. Although, I wouldn't recommend it alone.
Dig it a lot! Just recently used it on a sludge EP. I'd recommend combining it with an outside mic or the subkick mentioned above, though. I didn't and it was cool, but I did need to add a bunch of low end to it.
I use it with Audix D6
Great combination but alone it also sound good
