Can the microphone be used for live applications?
Of course, though you must capture your source at a close distance to eliminate feedback from occurring.


What is the recommended way to record in stereo?
ORTF or spaced (A/B) pairs is the optimal method.  We don't recommended xy configuration.


What is the recommended way to record an acoustic guitar?
On the 12th fret, angled to the 15th fret, about 3-5 inches away from the guitar. If using a stereo pair, you can employ the ORTF method, or spaced pair, one near the neck, and the other near the body.


What is the recommended way to record an amp'ed guitar or bass guitar?
For an electric guitar/bass amp, start with pointing the microphone to the outer part of the cone.


What is the recommended way to record drums?
There are many methods to record drums. You can start with a spaced A/B pair above your drum set. Try and find a good balance between your kick and snare, they should be in the center image of the kit. There are methods to record a drum kit with just 3 mics also.  You can place one Little Blondie Mic over the top of the snare, about 2-3 feet above the snare center and another Little Blondie Mic on the floor tom, equal distance to the center of the snare from the first Little Blondie Mic.  Parallel compress these mics, and blend the signal with the 3rd mic on the kick. 


What is the recommended way to record horns?
Set the microphone in front of your instrument and stand about a foot back.


What is the recommended way to record vocals or voice?
Set up a pop filter in between you and the microphone, and then stand about 6-8 inches back and sing in the direction of the microphone.


What is the recommended way to record an orchestra or choir?
This is another question that has many answers. The best way is to use a Decca Tree method. If you are only working with two microphones, the best way is to set up the microphones 5-6 feet behind the conductor and point the microphones towards the last stands of violas and 2nd violins.
For a choir, start by placing the microphones about 10 feet away from the choir, high in the air and point them down towards the middle row.
