    Nice acoustic guitar album

    I used an old MXL 991 condenser mic. Believe it or not it just records way better than my more expensive mics. Can't explain why. The mic plugged into a Steinberg UR-22 recording interface. Software is Reaper. I used just a little reverb. And used some light EQ and a Russian mastering...
