T1 - Main Microphone Techniques for 2.0 and 5.1

Helmut Wittek, SCHOEPS GmbH - Karlsruhe, Germany

This tutorial will explain step-by-step, using many practical examples, what a suitable stereophonic microphone array can look like. With 2.0 stereo setups as the starting point, multichannel setups will also be introduced. Many factors influence the choice of a stereophonic microphone setup, but the relevance of these factors can vary greatly depending on the application, such that there is never one single “correct” setup. Knowledge of various options gives a Tonmeister the ability to make optimal choices. In this session the free iPhone and browser App “Image Assistant” will be presented. It calculates the spatial characteristics of arbitrary stereophonic microphone arrays and auralizes the result. Moreover, the educational website is presented offering various comparative sound samples on the subject.
