What’s the best way to record a Didgeridoo?

The most recommended setup is to use a large diaphragm mic (e.g. NT-2000, NTK or K2) placed low and off to one side of the end of the digeridoo. Combine it with a second, smaller mic (e.g. NT3, NT5 or NT55) about a third of the way up from the bottom to capture tapping and vocal tricks.

The department does have a didgeridoo. Y12s, you know what to do….

The studio is due to see its next round of improvements over the next couple of months, including some new equipment and routing capabilities. We will be seeing the addition of a rack mounted Presonus HP60 to replace our portable headphone amp (which can still be used to further split a headphone signal), wall boxes with XLR and Jack routing to keep everything permanently connected (freeing up the snake for use in M2) and a flashy new Rode NT2-A condenser microphone with selectable pickup patterns (omni, cardioid and figure 8).
