A lot of people have been asking for me (off-list) to post some clips of either the Gefell M296 mics or the recent organ recording which I had mentioned a couple months ago (or in some cases both). So...here it is. This is a short clip of the live Bach organ festival that I recorded a short time back. This particular clip is of nothing but the two Gefell M296 microphones and no effects have been added to this recording. The mics were raised approximately 18.5' and were placed roughly 15' from the center of the arc of main pipes. They were spaced at around 3 feet apart and angled slightly (roughly 15 degrees off center axis each) outwards. A slight dehisser was used to help eliminate the pipes' air handlers. Comments are welcome. (Dead Link Removed) I should mention - this is intended to ultimately be a surround recording. In addition to the standard 16/44.1 CD release, this will also be going out as DVD-Audio 24/96 4.0 or 5.0 (yet to be decided if center channel to be utilized.) The rears (not played in this sample) were provided by Schoeps CMC6 Mk2s spaced 12 feet apart and placed roughly 2/3rds back in the hall. They pick up a great sense of the room as well as the antiphonal pipes. Cheers! J.
