For a white-board animation example, i'm building a new sound palette for the dry eraser markers and some other sfx (coins) with sharp attacks. I usually take an MKH50 and record a session in my booth with good results for most sfx. But with harsh transients and close miking i sometimes get a sound that is not very useful. The proximity effect and the capsule's transient response is the cause i think, but these are soft sounds and I need to get close to it.
So what are your experiences? What type of microphones do you use (dynamic)? And do you have any tips on getting great coin sounds (that sound like actual money and not a dull metal plink). I've used nails and screws in the past to mimic the sound, of bags of coins, but i need only singular coin sfx now.
