Blumlein Stereo Microphone Technique


In this video I give a demonstration on how to capture a stereo recording of a piano using two condenser microphones in the Blumlein array. I use two Rode NT2A microphones for the stereo technique plus a Rode NT 4 as a room mic plus a Sennheisser e906 close in on the harp. You might notice that the NT2A's are facing the wrong way; the sound is great and both mic's were phase inverted on the input channels.
