I would like to record footstep to create a personal sound bank. I wonder what preamps and what microphones you usually use for this kind of thing in studio? I do not have specific or maximum budget, So do not hesitate to suggest me very expensive stuff (of course less expensive is cool too).
The constraints include:
- Very good S/N ratio : I would like to record some tiny variation like sneak walk.
- Several microphone for several mic position (suggest several config)
- Neutrality and precision
In the past I used dual DPA 4006A for near recording in combo with dual DPA 4011A for distance. Unfortunately my preamp (Aphex 1788A) was not good enough (too much noise) but I was still satisfied with the sound from DPA. So I am open to alternative or similar suggestion.
