The Quick Reference Guide to Multichannel Microphone Arrays - Part I : using Cardioid Microphones

Document Thumbnail

No one microphone array is able to fulfil the needs of the sound engineer in all the different sound recording environments he encounters. This paper presents over 220 Multichannel Microphone Arrays using cardioid microphones, and describes their particular characteristics with respect to front-triplet, lateral-pair and back-pair coverage together with the specific segment offset values when required for Critical Linking. Arrays have been chosen so as to assist the sound engineer in his search for the optimum microphone array for a given recording situation.
