Here's another one, this time solo piano. The file can be found here. I used a pair of Neumann KM-183, 8" apart, 7' high, and the stand was 2' from the point where the body starts to curve. The piano was on full stick. How does the tone and clarity compare to the average modern piano recording? My thoughts are that it is a little dark and could have more detail; however, I'm too scared to put any EQ on it. What would you have done differently? I'll say this... i'm about sick of this quasi-ORTF omni technique. Sounds so boring and mono, and all the verb seems to be clumped in the center. Who uses this technique? When and why? Or, am I even accurate in my diagnosis? If this is too soon and I'm being a pest, let me know. Thanks.
