  1. Hi Everyone,

    How does room acoustic and the selection and location of microphone affects classical music recording???

    With Regards,

    It affects everything- what you asked is what recording is about.

    When recording classical music, you are recording a room as much as the music. The kind of mic that you use and where you place it will effect how you are recording the room and the music.

  3. Well, these things won't affect classical music recording at all. If you have classical music, and you record it, then that's about it isn't it?

    Seriously though, acoustic, mic selection, and placement are pretty much every variable in recording, aside from the instrument and player.

    If you choose a bad acoustic it'll probably sound bad, and same goes for a bad mic or poor placement. Bad = bad.

    This is kind of a whoppingly generalized question and really has no answer, kinda silly don't you think?

    Uh Jeremy...

    Read the second sentence... :D

    In all seriousness though... As Andrew said, this kind of question is really pretty pointless. I was a bit more diplomatic in my first answer, but the answer is that everything affects everything.

    Narrow the focus and then ask again

    I still don't get it. Maybe I'm just looking at the wrong words, or maybe Andrew's being even more of a smart ass than I usually am.

    Agreed - that's like asking, aside from the lens, the film and the lighting, what needs to be done to take a picture?

    Oops, I'm straying off the subject. :eek:
