Oboe - recorded on AKG 414, old U-87 and Elation KM 901

three cardioid microphones without attenuation and low-cut filter. The way of all the three signals to the ADC is the same. We tried to make everything as carefully as possible in the conditions that we have had...
Sorry for XXL hall...

keys - to PM

link to 16 bit WAV - 3 files - Ge.tt
Thanks!

Not sure which I prefer out of 2 and 3. #1 is too bright and over-emphasises the mechanical noises.

hmmm... Is the detailed and brightness not good for recording classical music? Maybe Shure sm58 is good stuff for classical recording?

OK, up2u... see PM.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. A bright mic (which is not necessarily the same thing as a detailed one in my view) can be great on, say, a piano, less so on a children's choir. In this case I think it brings up the mechanical noise from the oboe keys too much, so it becomes distracting.

Well, I won't knock it until I've tried it...

In this case, it's just a drawback of this oboe. Usually they are not noisy.

The first track sounds a tad too sharp whereas, the second track is more damped. I prefer the second track.

Cheers!

I must admit, it is a rarity for me to visit the “Gear Shoot-Outs / Sound File Comparisons / Audio Tests” section. So I have not had an opportunity to listen to the other types of music recorded through Elation products.

it has been my experience that oboe, like most classical instruments, benefits from a bit of distance. just for reference purposes, here is an oboe/piano duo recorded with an ORTF pair of km184s about 8 feet out from the oboe:
