Most of the guys ive seen have had the front removed so you can actually see the rotating horns and bass drum. If this is the case, take two mics for the hi end and point em towards the back top corners of the cab on the left and right. Make sure they are not in the way of the rotating horns.
Then put a good mic for picking up the bass on the bottom, Again pointing towards the back corner of the cabinet , not directly at the speaker.

I have seen some guys use the methods on the link though.

Miking a Leslie Speaker:

Aim one microphone into top louvers 3 inches to 1 foot away.
Natural, lacks deep bass Good one-mike pickup.


Mike top louvers and bottom bass speaker 3 inches to 1 foot away. Natural, well-balanced Excellent overall sound.


Mike top louvers with two microphones, one close to each side. Pan to left and right. Mike bottom bass speaker 3 inches to 1 foot away and pan its signal to centre Natural, well-balanced Stereo effect

Somehow missed this earlier. The 3 mic deal is where I am at this point. My horns still have the diffusers on them and they make wind noise in the mic on tremolo speed. Seems to be a little better with them removed but windsocks on the horn mics works the best. The setup mentioned above works really good on the chorale speed without socks.

Banjo Center has lowered the price on the Yamaha Motif ES series for the first time in the 4 years it's been sold.

$1400 is a good deal on the ES6. That's about what a Classic MO went for last year. The ES Rack price is unchanged.

Before I bought a MO I'ld check out the ES6 (very close in price and the MO has no sequencer)
