Description
I have a new (built 2011) Maton acoustic and I'm trying things out to see what works (strings, recording settings). Although there are a few spots in this tune that I want to iron out (bit more practice needed!) it's getting where I want it to be. Here are all the settings:

Guitar 2: Stereo Doubler (Dry), panned 12 right, volume +0.0 db
Guitar 3: Studio (Small Room), panned 24 left, volume -5.0 db

Output track: Broadcast Ready

Tunings
Guitar 1: standard tuning
Guitar 2: capo 5th fret, standard tuning
Guitar 3: Open G tuning (comes in over final verse)

Guitar strings
Martin Retro 12-54

Microphone

Moonlit Night
Very nice acoustic piece. It carries you along in a warm embrace. The new guitar is sounding great. Very restrained of you to only have three guitar tracks :-) Lovely work. Talk soon. Thanks.

Glad you liked it. I'm very happy with the guitar. I think I'll go back to the D'Addario EJ16 strings - a bit brighter than the Martin, but I'll keep playing these a bit longer yet. Yes, only three tracks - and one of them just a bit of depth to the first one. A miracle. :-)

you rock
Beautiful sounds to fill your mind and heart with. Love the way you have woven the separate guitar sounds to create such a full but still melodious sound.

Moonlight night
Very well played and mixed. Getting multiple acoustic tracks to still sound clear and distinct is tough but you've done it here.
I was surprised to see you used a Shure SM58 - I tried one on acoustics and lost a lot of sparkle but that doesn't seem to be the case here - the sound is great.
Best wishes
Steve

Glad you liked it Steve. I must admit I used the SM58 because it was the only one I had at the time - I was away from home and didn't have access to my usual hardware. I think Logic Pro X added the sparkle...

Great Sound
Really nice sound, and excellent playing, enjoyed this quite a bit. I never heard of a Maton, but it has a very rich timbre.

Glad you enjoyed it. In Australia, you'll get to hear lots of Matons; but not so many in other countries. Tommy Emmanuel is perhaps the best known user (he has his own signature model).

Love the mix
and thanks for sharing your settings... maybe if I can find a quite room, some decent mics and a little privacy I could sound better. A lot has to do with talent and performance, that's where you shine. lovely tune. Much enjoyed.

I'm a great believer that if you want a better recording the best thing to do is play better - but that's easier said than done, I find! Thanks for the compliments, John - much appreciated!
