What kind of mic is it? What are the volume settings on the preamp? A dynamic mic usually used for vocals needs to be closer. A condenser mic should be placed further away. You will have to adjust the volume levels depending on the sensitivity of the mic. If the mic has a windscreen (black foam on the mic,) take it off, you don't need it for recording sax.Wailin' said:How far from the mic should the sax be?
