so i got a condenser mic (akg c4000b) last summer, with the protools mbox as a preamp and recording interface. it came with a shockmount and windscreen (don't use the windscreen though), i got a stand for it, and i got a pop filter.
so when i set all this up my homie tells me to turn the mic upside-down. i think back to all the times i've seen videos or tv episodes that show pros in the studio, and yea they have their mics upside-down. so i decide, yea, i'll turn my own mic upside-down. its worked fine and i have no complaints.
but i'm just really curious about this.... why should it be turned upside-down???
