Post just a little request ...

First off, what microphone's do you have????

If I were doing this session I would go for a pair of ribbon microphones on each instrument... On the vibes, the two mikes I would choose would be a pair Royer 122's. In x/y set as an ORTF pair.

‘XY microphone technique’ requires two identical microphones angled at 90º. ORTF the acronym for Office de Radiodiffusion Television Francaise (French Radio and TV) requires two microphones spread by 17cm to emulate the width of human ears, angled at 110º. This will make a very natural sounding pick-up on the vibes...

As I recall the Balaphon is the West African instrument that resembles a small xylophone. So.... Basically the same mike set-up as the Vibes...

When and if you can record these lovely instruments this way, I would like to give you a little mixing tip!!!

Mr. Swedien,


does the ORTF arrangement equal the near coincident arrangement?

Are those 2 techniques or just two terms for one technique?


greetings

First, I can't believe I get to ask Bruce Swedien a question. Thank you so much for doing this.

Now to the question: When you record in stereo do you always center the instrument when you record then pan the pairs, as the above diagram suggests? In a situation like the one above, would you record the instruments off center so that if you brought up both pairs panned full one would lean left, the other right?
