Taking it even further, looking into the microphone placement on guitar amps is another realm that this topic dives into.  This article talks about certain aspects such as obtaining the best sound you can right from the amp as well as using multi-amp sounds to achieve the coloration you are looking for.

This article is a must-read for anybody looking to record guitar in the future. It is very interesting how just a fraction of an inch of moving the mic can effect the sound of a guitar so much.

This article delves into the microphone issue of which is best for any given situation. First it talks about the placement of the mic and where it will best suit for which session setting you are in. It does not give any information on a universal mic which could mean that they do not believe one is around today. Maybe one that can do multiple recording setting but not all. This is a great source for industries because it tells you what is great for what setting to record with.

Where your microphone is placed has a lot to do with the sound it produces. Mic placement is something that can alter the sound of your music. Background noise should be eliminated through proper placement and sound proofing.

This Scoop is very informative. It provides information on how to place microphones on a guitar amp and what kind of microphones to use when recording certain instruments.

When most people think of stereo recording, the first thing that comes to mind is a matched pair of microphones, arranged in a coincident (XY) pattern. But while XY microphone recording is the most obvious method, it's not the only game in town.

Tyre Henderson's insight:

It's not uncommon for musicians to be intimidated by the complexity of MS recording, and I've watched more than one person's eyes glaze over at an explanation of it. But at its most basic, the MS recording technique is actually not all that complicated.

I like this article because it is more on the technical aspect of microphones and how to imply these technical aspect to what your trying to capture.  I use a lot of Universal Audio gear and find this to be very creditable.

Austin Lowry's curator insight, January 12, 8:16 PM

This article really helped give me an idea how much mic positioning matters when recording. There is a particular pattern called "XY" pattern that is a well known technique in the industry. I really liked this article for its in depth information.

Recording techniques should be taken as guidelines and not law.  To find exactly what will work for your certain end statement is going to be completely up to you in the end.  The "Pro" to this topic is that engineers have narrowed down great places to start for a certain end result you may be looking to achieve.  The "Con" to this is that the guidelines previous engineers have shared may actually be the poison keeping you from your desired end result.  I love this topic on recording techniques because it has the double-edged sword characteristic.  Just because it is recommended or worked for one engineer doesn't mean it will work for you.

This is a great article to read if you are just starting to get into recording music. This article provides the types of microphones and their purposes when being used. It even briefly describes situations that may happen in the studio along with solutions to deal with them.
