Optimization of Microphone Setup for Symphonic Orchestra Recordings During Rehearsal

Many symphonic orchestras use non-optimal two microphone setup during rehearsal recordings. These recordings are used for archiving purposes and to evaluate and improve artistic skills of whole orchestra and its members. For that purposes good resolution of stereo image during reproduction is needed. The process of decission to choose right microphone setup can be based on geometrical parameters of the orchestra podium and acoustical properties of a rehearsal hall. Some theoretical considerations presented in this paper are supported by real recordings made in the hall of the Philharmony of Szczecin, Poland and listening tests made by orchestra members.
