Recording Noise in Adjacent Rooms.
Posted: Tue Dec 01, 2020 10:35 pm
I live in a basement condo in a townhouse apartment. Above me lives a very noisy teenager who stomps around for long periods of the day and late evening. I am trying to record his noise so I can make my case before the condo board. I purchased a Blue Yetti microphone and mounted it on a stand that reaches to within about a foot below the ceiling where the kid does his stomping. I have the volume nob turned all the way up, the GAIN nob turned all the way up, and have the setting set on "omnidirectional" as recommended. The Blue Yetti mike picks up noises within my room and in the rest of my apartment very clearly. However, it barely picks up the noise of the kid, even when he is stomping directly above me. This was the most powerful microphone on stock in Guitar Center. Does anyone know of a microphone better suited to record noises in adjacent rooms? I would appreciate any helpful information you may have.
