I just record yesterday my first melodica session... i use a vocal microphone, but i have take time to found how to positionne it to have less repsiration and pressing key noise. I put the mic horizontal and i play over it... i don't know if it's the best technic, but you will soon hear it when i have got finished the mix down.

hi kocha, nice to hear from you again.

well, melodica is a REAL instrument, not a synth. so, this is my point of view: you have to hear the noise of the keys. this is normal.
your ears can hear the noise, so the tape too!!!

like an accordion, like a guitar etc...

to record it, I use a simple SM57 Shure under my melodica at approx 10 centimeters.

i also think it's nice to hear some of the key noise. i use an old black hohner and place the mic above the keyboard at a distance of ca 20 cm.

point taken :-) I plan to sample the thing,
and most definately I would like both key-
noise and clean sound, it might be nessesary
to remove noises mechanically for clean sound.

I think sometimes Alpha and Omega uses a very
"cheap" handheld dynamic-mic, for the effect
this provides, and for the ability to use the
mic as a part of the expression

I put the microphone under the melodica. This is where the tone-openings are on most models. When you do that, you get a lot less key lick and more tone.
