Recording classical symphonies in a large concert hall setting, has different challenges than recording rhythmic bands in a studio, but still great sounds starts with great microphones. Microphones are not instruments, they are recording tools. Authenticity is needed, it is not up for debate how a Stradivarius sounds.
Our recording microphones has modular capsules and preamplifiers to deliver superior sound for high-quality studio recording situations. The transformerless design ensures extremely low noise and unparalleled off-axis response. The range is wide and provides superb-sounding microphones with any type of pickup pattern required for your specific needs. Within the series there are a wide variety of capsules including the 4006 Omnidirectional Microphone, 4011 Cardioid Microphone, 4015 Wide Cardioid Microphone and 4041-SP Large Diaphragm Microphone.
Using microphone main arrays for stereo or full surround sound is another way to record a symphony. Most orchestras are a self-balancing phenomena – each instrumental part can be heard without the need for additional miking. As well, acoustic reflections and a sense of acoustic space are an important aspect of the sound of an orchestra - just as much as the instruments themselves.
Our recording microphones contains a range of stereo and surround kits that can be used in conjunction with the S5 Surround Mount to capture amazing surround sound recordings of classical symphonies.
