During recording of Daft Punk's Random Access Memories, one of the mics used to record the kick drum was the AKG D 112, used for its "...nice, solid, low bottom and a punchy mid-range."
Halpern lists this mic as the one used for the outside kick drum in the video's description.
According to Sound on Sound interview with Shawn Everett, this microphone was used on kick drum.
This is good for both studio and live use. For the best result use a trigger as a gate
overrated as a kick mic, great on a loud bass amp as a close mic with a figure 8 condenser about a yard out and then phase/time aligned later.
NIce. I'll try that. Thanks for the tip
Great microphone, sounds great on Kick.
Great to mic to use in bass combos or cabinets.
