Nice -- kind of Eames-ish.

Mathematically, MS is exactly the same stereo pattern as XY, so I'd say the same issues with movement occur no matter what the micing technique - but they are exacerbated by close micing. What I described as locking myself in place, basically by having a chair and a footstool, I do regardless of the micing technique. I don't like wearing headphones while recording, unless I'm overdubbing.



I do suspect that with spaced pairs there's at least a bit more of a visual guide, and observant guitarists will naturally try to keep themselves aligned to the mics, while an MS setup offers less of a visual cue. But I've had plenty of times recording others where we get the mics set up and by 2nd take I realize the player has managed to move dramatically out of the position we set up - even with spaced pairs.... Some people just can't sit still :-) I do feel better correcting the levels of a spaced-pair recording than an XY or MS if they end up being off because someone has moved - perhaps for no rational reason.


I知 about to purchase two CMC5 scheops kit mics. I thought about getting them both cardioid but, after watching your video. I知 thinking of getting 1 cardioid, and the other Omni. It値l be mostly used for acoustic guitar recording. I知 still not sure though.

For MS, you need a figure 8, not omni. The mid mic can be either cardiod or omni, tho it's usually cardiod. The side has to be a figure 8, which would be the MK8 capsule for schoeps. The nice thing is that you can easily add more capsules once you have the mic bodies. (Well, it's "easy", but the capsule's aren't cheap...) I have a pair of MK41s (hyper-cardiod), MK2s (omni), and MK8s (figure 8). With 2 MK8s, you can also do Blumlein. It's actually kind of cool to do MS with 2 figure 8's as you can set them up for XY/Blumlein, and then just rotate them 45 degrees and you have MS.

Interesting. I have one wooden stool that has the upward curved sides and I can't use it because the side of the guitar bumps into the right side.

Maybe these don't have that problem...

Used this technique a couple months ago to finally get a recording I liked, thank you!

I bet these items used as a group would make a really nice M/S (along with other configs) set for reasonable money
