FMR RNP acoustic test file

Posting this in reference to the Black Lion Auteur VS. FMR RNP.
My Auteur is being loaned out at the moment, but here's a clip of the RNP on acoustic guitar.

Taylor 310 through the FMR RNP, into an RME Multiface II, into Nuendo.
No compression or EQ..

Recorded in mono with an Avenson STO omni microphone 15 inches from the 12th fret.

If you hear any hiss, its from the Avenson mic, not from the RNP. The Avenson mic has an extremely small capsule, and is omni. It is extremely flat response, which is why i thought it would be good for a "reference" recording. But it has a high self noise.

No replies to this, so I thought I'd revive. I'm considering picking up an RNP.

Sounds great. Quiet, too.

15 inches away? Damn... is it the mic pre that makes it sound that full, or the omni mic?

Nice playing, too.

Crap, just noticed this dude is banned from GS... oh well... good info/test.

Clean, flat, natural... Hard to beat for the money.
