T11 - WHAT IS THE MATRIX?
Helmut Wittek, Schoeps Mikrofone GmbH - Germany
This tutorial will be an introduction to the use of matrixing in microphone and mixing techniques for stereo and multichannel. The basics of microphone polar patterns will be explained, followed by the fundamentals of techniques such as "textbook" M/S and soundfield recording. Included in the tutorial will be a discussion of how to use matrixing to "re-mix" an existing recording, to modify microphone configurations in postproduction, and to manipulate spatial characteristics of stereo mixes. In addition, information on the exciting possibilities in the fast-paced world of karaoke soundtrack production will be presented.
