    ORTF vs XY

    What are the pros con between ORTF and XY? How do you know which config to use? Is one better for solo, quartet, choirs, orchestra? How does crossing XY change the imaging vs the opposite in ORTF? Does X have to be above Y (or vise versa) and why? Do you use the same Cardioids for XY or ORTF or...

    (term) XY

    XY creates a stereo image by using two cardioid or hyper cardioid microphones placed as near as possible to each other (and up to 12 inches apart) at 90-135 degrees spread and with the center of the spread pointed at the sound source.

    (term) XY Stereo

    XY stereo set-up is a coincidence stereo technique using two cardioid microphones in the same point and angled at 90° to produce a stereo image. Theoretically, the two microphone capsules need to be at exactly the same point in space to avoid any phase problems due to the distance between the...

    Uses of XY Miking

    Just about how much distance are you supposed to put between the mics and the source using this technique? How about for a drum set and a guitar amp.

    XY mics on a drum kit - roughly above the toms pointing at cymbals. Placement give or take. The kit and in fact, the band, isn't very loud and this is while the band is singing at a rehearsal. Good thing? Not the best thing? Terrible idea? I've tried something vaguely in an XY pattern...

    XY technique with side-address condenser microphones

    Hi, I am trying to figure out the right way to use my AT2020 side address microphones in an XY technique for drum overheads. I just can't seem to understand it by reading articles about it because none of the microphones in the diagrams are side-address. Also, is XY the best technique the...
