Watched a great doco this arvo on this man, Melvyn Bragg narrating. What a voice, light lyric, talented man alright. There were some shots of recording sessions where he had a spaced array of MKH800's in front of him, quite a distance, say 1.5m, capsules at lip height, but the spacing was so wide some 400mm or so it seemed. Are these just a redundant array or would a spaced image be required. He moved side to side quite a bit, so I concluded they must be redundant. Normally redundant mics are right next to each other, though. Any of you Decca experts know this technique, Rich? Plush? and wish to comment.
