I use Close Mic but layered with CSSS' Mix Mic. I like the timbre of the close mic. it has a more detailed vibrato. There's no right no wrong here though. It's all about personal preference. You may also use Mix Mic for CSS and then layered with CSSS Mix mic as well. I did EQ the High Freq after layering though. I'll show an example soon for a re-orchestrated version of my past works with CSS, CSSS, CSB and Berlin Woodwinds Legacy in action (a new orchestral template which i've just done few days ago)Thanks for your reply. Much appreciated!
Do you only use Close Mics for CSS? Do you find that with the trees and ambient that it loses definition?
