A novel take on a human whistle, we've captured the results of whistling into our Yamaha upright with sustain enforced (brick on the pedal) - cue eerily reverberant and dank aerophonic beauty. Mic positions include close, at-the-strings and processed, which allows the introduction of some digital clipping. We tasked a Neumann M149 to capture the close field, and a Schoeps MK 5 to get sound at the piano strings. The processing involved converting via UAD into ProTools and slamming through their space echo emulator, plus a dash of eq sculpting via their Pultec emulator.
