Just stumbled across this and thought i would share it. Apologies if its been shared before.
Im a bit confused though. I always thought, XY was positioning the capsules as close together as possible, to minimize any phasing from timing differences? I cant upload a picture right now, but basically i have always put the mic capsules one on top of the other, angled out between 45 and 90 degrees of centre line, depending on the setup and room?
Bearing mind I'm a humble live (paid) and studio engineer (less often paid), and have had no formal training in recording live shows, but i normally get good reports from artists that i record live.
And also, aren't a lot of those mic placements basically the same thing with slight variations on angle and spacing? i know that small changes in mic placement often mean big differences in sound, but do they really all need different names?
