Stereo Recording Procedures
This chapter is divided into three parts. The first part explains how to do an on-location stereo recording of a classical music ensemble (Bartlett, 1998). The second part covers the basics of stereo miking for popular music. The last part is a special troubleshooting guide to help you pinpoint and solve problems in stereo reproduction.
We start by going over the equipment and procedures for an on-location recording of classical music.
Before going on location, you need to assemble a set of equipment, such as this:
Microphones (low-noise condenser or ribbon type, omni or directional, free field or boundary, stereo or separate).
Recorder (open reel, DAT, MDM, etc., noise reduction optional).
