Details

Using a speaker as a low-frequency capture mic is nothing new. The Beatles used this technique as far back as the recordings of "Paperback Writer" and "Rain". The Solomon LoFReQ Sub Mic is intended to work alongside your existing kick drum microphone, in a separate channel, thereby allowing more flexibility with EQ, compression and processing in general. By having two separate channels you have the best chance at molding the signals through separate EQ, compression etc.

Setting the Gain Stage

The LoFReQ is designed with an inline pad to match most dynamic kick drum mics as far as output at your mic pre. A good starting point would be to set your primary kick mic, then set the LoFReQ gain the same, and adjust from there. How much you will need to adjust will depend on placement, source SPL, etc.

Rolling off the Highs

If you’re micing a kick drum, try rolling off around 150hz and up. Everybody’s taste is different, but that’s not a bad starting point.
