Rode iXY Stereo Microphone Demo with Koa Taylor acoustic guitar

Posted by Mick Dennis on December 21, 2017 at 9:20 PM


Rode iXY Stereo Microphone Demo with Koa Taylor acoustic guitar on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXRqryDVXRc

In this video, I am doing a basic demo of the Rode iXY Stereo Microphone with a 2006 Taylor GS Koa. The chord progression that I am using is: Em-D-C-B7. This happens to be the beginning of the flute solo from the Moody Blues song "Nights in White Satin".

I start off the video by playing with an Dunlop ULTEX .060 large triangle pick. At 1:05 I switch to a Golden Gate Mandolin pick (the Ultimate Jazz Guitar pick). At 2:32 I switch to a Cocobolo wooden pick by Pickslayswoodworking. At 3:48 I end the video with some basic classical fingerpicking and simple flamenco-type strumming with rasqueados.

The video was shot with an iPhone 6s Plus with the FiLMiC Pro app, Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter and a Rode iXY Stereo Microphone. The mic was approx 12-16 inches away from the front of the sound hole of the guitar.

I used GarageBand to add some subtle audio processing.

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Peace Out!~Mick
