Studios Virginia Beach Stereo microphone recording has many uses for music projects. The number one reason to use a stereo recording technique is to create an accurate ‘stereo image,’ or mental picture of the sound space. When listeners hear your recordings, they will be able to experience the sensation that they are sitting IN the space where the musicians are recording. One of the first and most common places for this is in classical music recording. A well made stereo recording of a classical ensemble will give the listener the ability to pick out the individual groups of instruments, as though they were attending the concert live. This is not exclusive to classical music at all though, so don’t be afraid to try it out on any music you like. Ultimately, this effect shouldn’t be underestimated, as an immersive sound experience can make your recordings really stand out.
Studio Virginia Beach one of the best ways to get an accurate recording of a traditional group of classical musicians is with a spaced pair of identical omnidirectional microphones. This requires adequate room, so finding a large recording space will be vital. Suspended from an overhead mounting wire or appropriately large microphone stands, the microphones should be placed about 15-20 feet apart, depending on the size of the ensemble. Keeping the microphones at least 5 feet and up to 15 feet (if you are recording in a concert hall) above the performers will ensure that you get the ambience of the recording space captured. Especially in classical music, part of the musical aesthetic is the sound of the space, hearing notes ring out fully in and opera house or whatever space the musicians are in. Proper spacing will allow the omnidirectional mics to capture the instruments on each side, allow for enough separation to create a solid, distinct stereo image, and limit ‘bleeding’ of sounds from the opposite mic.

When panning a spaced pair, you should pan hard left and right as a starting point.Studio Virginia Beach you can critically listen to your mix to fine-tune your recording and play with the panning to see what you like, but spaced pairs are a (relatively) simple way to capture an accurate stereo image. Give it a try and see how richly it can enhance your music.
