In Reply to: Timbo - what are some good coincident stereo symphonic recordings? posted by Chris from Lafayette on July 5, 2012 at 17:20:04:
LSO Live are mostly TF's work. TF does use spots sometimes.
HMU mostly, Alia Vox, Accent (Haydn's Seasons - old but good).
Many live concert broadcasts are simply miked. But FM in USA is pretty dire. It can't have gotten better since '97 and '98 when I was in Frisco and in 'Bawlmoor.'
I'll soon - I hope* - be recording for our local Artsound FM at 'classical' events. They use ORTF arrays and DAT, to which I'd like to add an omni under each cardiod, but needs a 4-track DAT / hard disk machine. This helps with bass and hall sound.
I'm also hoping to afford to buy a single capsule coincident mike, ideally one switchable between Mid-Side (M-S)#, as well as L & R.
#Mid-side produces a L-R and a L+R (mono) signal which can be de-matrixed just like FM is, and can give more or less hall sound / more distant or closer in post production / editing to stereo ( L & R ).
Very commonly used to feed direct into an FM transmitter, mono into the 19kHz carrie and L-R into the 38kHz carrier (which JBTW, is really more like an AM SingleSideBand transmission). Just one of the reason why good (directional) antennas matter for FM stereo.
Mid-side is the basis for single capsule Sound-Field mikes. As used by Nimbus for the recordings of the Hanover Band.
* Tummy troubles which we hope are just worsening side-effects of my current medications which my system is getting too used to. I'll be having tests - starting Monday.
