Need mic recommendations for recording car exhaustI record a lot of car exhaust, using a 744t with SM58 mics. Usually this combo works really well (at least I think it does, you can see a sample at https://youtu.be/ALQn0eTXttA), but sometimes the exhaust I'm recording has a huge bottom end AND a lot of high frequency sound as well. Since the SM58's seem to be optimized for mid-frequencies, I just can't get a full-bodied sound in those cases. Can you please recommend other mic choices that give me a wider range of recording capability, but can record really LOUD sound sources like the SM58's can? Obviously I'm not a trained sound pro, so please excuse any errors in my terminology. Appreciate any help.
Hi, I'm new and appreciate this great resource and the people here. We shoot a lot of automotive performance videos, and the biggest challenge is recording accurate exhaust sound. I found a great thread here on the subject, but I also want to ask if anyone can recommend any books, online courses, or even "brick & mortor" classes (if in L.A. area) that would help me learn and expand audio skills, especially for this exhaust challenge. One book I found that might apply is Recording Music on Location by Bruce & Jenny Bartlett. I figured the dynamic range of an automotive exhaust was similar in many ways to a concert. But I am sure suggestions from the pros here will be much more applicable. It might help to show an example of what we typically do. the link should go to about 4:55, where a particularly loud exhaust is featured. I greatly appreciate any help! - Chris
