I remember reading about a technique for recording guitar where you place 1 mic directly facing the speaker cone, and the other is facing it at a 45 degree angle. I was thinking that In Flames used this technique, but I haven't been able to find anything out...


If anyone knows what I'm referring to it would really help me out!

Mmmm...using two mics with one of them off axis? I don't know of a specific name for the technique but almost everyone uses 2 if not 3 mics on cabs now.

I know, but I'm pretty sure there's a name for that specific set up, or at least the name of the person that popularized it?

You have just answered my question perfectly.

You deserve a hi-five!

Well, the sound of that In Flames record is often called 'The Clayman Sound'... never heard anyone name that technique though as it isn't just the mic position that got the sound where it is.
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

I'm not referring to the sound, or the album, just the miking technique itself. I appreciate your input though!
