I'm trying to record a single take containing my vocal and electric guitar at once. Unfortunately, the vocal mic is picking up a lot of pick noise from the guitar. That's a problem if I try to pan the vocal away from the electric guitar!
To try to reduce the amount of pick noise reaching the vocal mic, I got a Studio Projects B3 multipattern mic, and set it to figure 8. I aimed it so the voice was on the main axis and the guitar was at 90 degrees, to try to get it in the notch of the figure-8 pattern. I was disappointed to find that this was not very effective.
Is there a technique I'm missing here, to try to reduce bleed?
Thanks for any suggestions!
