Recording acoustic guitar to sound like a classical
      08/06/11 03:45 PM

This question may sounds strange but...

Is it possible to record an acoustic guitar (Steel strings) and to make it sound a bit softer like a nylon strings classical guitar. Is there some specific EQuing and/or mic placement that could help ?

Currently, my recording with an acoustic sounds like...an acoustic steel-strings guitar (part played with the fingers). I used my Audio-Technica T2020 near the body from under ( I thought that close-miking near the neck would give too much high frequencies from the steel strings).

Anyway, I know I should ask someone to lend me his classical , but I was just asking for fun what would be possible to do during recording or with processing.
