RE: How to reproduce the full dynamics of a scissor cutting paper without clipping

What distance was the mic from the spoon at the point of impact?

I don't know about you but when a spoon hits a tile floor from say a 1 meter drop, I cringe from the initial "KLANG". It is LOUD but short.

Scissors will only be remotely close to 150db with your ear right at the scissors. Move a few feet away and the SPL has dropped dramatically. The initial pressure where the sound is being generated is high but it is a very small point that it is expanding from (the contact area generating the sound is miniscule) and therefore dissipates rapidly as the wavefront expands.

Put the mic at arms length away and it is probably less than 100db peak.
