Hey guys, it's me again... back for more. So, I've made several piano recordings since last time, and I feel that I've moved far beyond my early efforts, which were pretty poor in retrospect. Here's the latest, an excerpt from the Rondo from Mozart's Sonata in D, K. 311. The recording was made with a single Blumlein pair of R-122. The pair was on the piano's center line, 135 cm out from the closest part of the piano, and 170 cm high. The pair was also slightly rotated to the left in order to balance the image. I also printed a 70 cm omni pair of splayed 4006, placed in the same distance and vertical planes, solely for later comparison. From experimentation, it seems that these mics on this piano in this hall are never right becuase they are always too bottom heavy and 'woofly' as David likes to say. I tried mixing the pairs together in various proportions, but it never really did anything positive in my opinion. I'd like to hear some harsh criticism based on how you think this should have ideally turned out. I personally think it's pretty successful, and fairly appropriate for the piece. My complaints are that it may be a hair too ambient, a hair too wide, not enough oomph in the low end, not quite enough sparkle, and the tone in the high bass-low mid region is a little funny. Agree with any of that? Disagree? Id' also love to hear suggestions on where I should go with piano recording in the near future. I feel like I'm running out of ideas to improve the sound, yet I'm not totally pleased. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
