Surround Micing techniques.

The main technique presented to us was the decatree (pictured above.) We set this up with the neuman as the centre mic. We positioned the mics so that the piano was evenly spread across the front left, centre and front right mic.


I was much happier with the result when we tried my idea of spreading the mics out to match the positions a surround speaker set up and turned the mics inwards. It really gives a feel for someone moving around within a space. I think it would be cool to use this set up for a sound installation. Feed the mic signals to 5 corrosponding speakers in a seperate room, so people can hear people moving around that they can't see.
