I spend quite a long time finding the perfect spot for my microphone while recording voices - both narration and vocals.
Do any of you who also record narration/vocals do the same? Or do you sort of "set it and forget it"?
Do any of you give extra special care to where you place your mic when you are recording sound effects in the field?
Also, I never really understood the principle of "letting the sound wave develop" like the lower frequencies. Someone told me I have to place the mic a little further away to "let the low frequencies develop". Is this true and do you guys do this? Can someone explain that to me if you don't mind?
