Hello experts. Misa got a question. How far are the mics placed from the soundsource when using the ORTF technique? I tested it and noticed some phase issues. This is the setup I used: Recording acoustic guitar 2 pencil mics angled 110 degrees and distanced 17cm (6.6 inches) apart from each other The mics were positioned 30 cm away from the guitar (12 inches) According to the 3:1 rule these technique should generate phase problems. ¿Am I right? In other words, if the mic heads are 12 inches appart, then they must be placed at a maximum distance of 4 inches from the sounsource. Otherwise, the 3:1 rule is not met. This is in direct conflict with the idea of capturing the stereo image by placing the mics 12 inches or more from the soundsource. What am I missing?
