I’ve tracked these mics with DAWs and portables and they’re always accurate and balanced with robust signal output. They’re also extremely sensitive, quickly responding to subtle changes in guitar dynamics and timbre. Artificial and natural harmonics have plenty of sparkle and air and the ultra low noise of the KM184 allow delicate tones to really shine in the track.
I mainly use the KM184 as a pair on a stereo bar in X/Y configuration. The cardioid pattern "hears" in a 180 degree sound field in front of them, but with reduced backwards sensitivity. When I record guitar ensembles with players on the extreme right and left of the mics, they sound just as vivid as the center players. I can hear the position of each player in the stereo field with pinpoint accuracy.
Because these mics are well balanced, tracks need a minimum of post processing. If I record in a decent room and position mics well, all I need is a touch of EQ in the lower midrange and they sound full and natural.
The video features my ensemble, the Frary Guitar Duo, playing Scarborough Fair. We recorded it in my office with a pair of KM184 (stereo bar) and Tascam DR-100 MKII.
Finally, the KM184 makes a wonderful stage mic for acoustic and classical guitar. Unlike many recording mics, these are small (cigar sized) robust and have plenty of output. Be sure to bring your own clip as the KM184 is too small for clips used on stage mics.
I'm extremely pleased with my pair of Neumann KM184: impeccable fit and finish, natural and balanced sound and clean output. These are the mics I reach for first when recording classical and acoustic guitars.
