Subjective Evaluation for Music Recording Positions in a Coherent Region of a Reverberant Field

In this article, we describe the most preferable frequency characteristics of the early reflections for music recording positions. We recorded short passages from two music pieces (Haendel," Water Music Suite" and Brahms," Symphony No.4") at various distances from a sound source in a coherent region in a reverberation chamber. Subjects evaluated the preference and the subjective loudness through headphones under the diotic condition by paired comparison tests. As a result, we found that the most preferable distance indicated the distance where the loudness became maximum. The preferable recording condition could be also characterized by narrow-band envelope spectrum analysis.
