In this new mic set up (at my home studio) i use a Neumann stereo pair, a 3th Neumann in the mid area directing towards the pillar + sounding board and a DPA contact mic instead of the AKG contact mic. The DPA has a better cable. Of course i use a lot of absorbing materials to deal with the acoustics. The m-audio card in combination with the silent laptop Lenovo and ableton software is working stable. I record in 88k 24b with my Lyon and Healy 100. I am planning to record a brand new harPoetry album this winter. More later !
