I’d like to get a mic for sound-design work. Specifically, I wish to record quiet sounds, amplify them and mangle them...

If a single mic cable isn’t long enough but two plugged together will reach, should I let that worry me or can I go ahead and sleep easier at nights?
I recently bought a Zoom H6 recorder, and am confused how its Mid-Sides recording works. Could you explain?
I thought I had a handle on this, but seem to have a hard time understanding the difference between a compressor’s ‘Hold’ and its ‘Release’. Can you help explain?
My own setup is an Audient ASP880 preamp connected via ADAT to an Avid HD Omni working with Pro Tools 12.4 HD Native. Is it better to set the Audient as master for recording (and the Omni as slave)?
Perhaps I do not understand the proximity effect very well! But my question is this: can you decrease the proximity effect solely by lowering the volume?
I’ve been reading about iZotope’s Neutron, and how it is described as automating the process of attenuating some frequencies of audio track B, so that the simultaneously played audio track A, which has signal in the same frequency range, sounds more prominent...
In Ableton Live, I used to use a plug-in to split a channel so that I could do multiband processing. I’m now using Cubase Pro 8.5 and it doesn’t seem to work...
I have heard somewhere that you should avoid having your tweeters centred vertically in the room — is there some truth in it?
I have a Nord Electro 4HP keyboard, which I’d like to run seamlessly through guitar pedals in real time and in stereo. The signal distorts quite badly at higher keyboard and pedal volumes. Can you suggest a device that would remedy this?
