Tonal Effects of Classical Music Microphone Placement

The spectrum of a symphonic band playing in a concert hall was measured in the audience seating area. It was also measured close to the band, in several locations typically used for recording. These measurements were repeated with an orchestra. In general, the spectrum measured close to the performers had more high-frequency energy than the spectrum measured in the audience area. This situation leads to over-bright recordings if flat-response microphones and loudspeakers are used. Suggestions are offered to remedy the problem.
