Recording in stereo - Real Acoustic Performances

It seemed sensible, before starting to do the video on recording choirs, to explain a little about the differing techniques you can use to record 'real' stereo - as in recording the placement of individual sound sources within a stereo soundfield. Quite different from our usual multitrack method of panning the various tracks to their proper location. Recording with just a pair of microphones means we have to do the job in particular ways - and many of these have 'labels' - X/Y, A/B, ORTF, Blumlein, M/S and many others.

I've tried to explain in the video what the practical differences are, and how they work.

What an excellent video explaining stereo, how we hear things in relation to stereo micing and then ending on point with the importance of checking all stereo mixes in mono prior to finalizing.
