The comparison of microphone arrangements [for] orchestral instruments

This is an interesting set of interactive demonstrations showing the effect of microphone positioning relative to a performer. All the extracts are recorded using DPA4006A omni microphones in A-B configuration in a good acoustic.

Here is the PSW article that drew my attention to the site. Because I'm a PSW registered member, I can't tell whether this PSW site is accessible to non-members, so let me know if it's not.

I agree. DPA puts time into educating people which is a win win to me because the more I've learned about recording, the more DPA stands out as very high quality microphones.
