Recording of Acoustical Concerts Using a Soundfield Microphone

Document Thumbnail

Based on extensive practical experience of one of the authors, recording of acoustical concerts, using a Soundfield Microphone, without spot or support microphones is discussed. The focus is stereo recording of classical music. Strategies for positioning of the microphone, B-Format decoding, and mastering are presented. The so-obtained final mix is largely based on the natural mix of sound reaching the microphone. This is in contrast to more conventional recording techniques which use usually a large number of spot and support microphones. Last but not least, limitations and cost considerations are discussed.
