I'm wondering if anyone has had success with using cardioid pattern ribbon microphones as a main pair for choir and what mics they were. The thing is I've found my R88 impractical for a certain tight space (choir loft) in which I've been recording recently. I was duly warned about getting a blumlein ribbon mic as a 'desert island' mic and, sadly, I ignored the nay-sayers who had my best interests at heart. I do indeed love the R88, but it is no good for this space. I'm thinking an ORTF arrangement would be perfect, and have had partial success with the Rode NT5 in the past, but the sound of that pair is too toppy and lacking in bottom end for my taste. I've got an AEA The Ribbon Pre, so I have been wondering how a ribbon pair in ortf might sound on choir. Has anyone here gone in that direction?
