A mourning chant for the 4-way Phased Array

I recorded a top high school choir -- state champions, in fact -- in a fairly dead auditorium and did not want to clutter the stage with mic stands. I set up a 4-way phased array on a single mic stand using Line Audio CM3's (41 cm) and flanking OM1's (67 cm), each pair at 90 degrees to each other, pretty much according to Faulkner's published basic specs. The choir used shells, and the array stood about 12 feet high on stage just behind the conductor.

Recorder and preamps were a Tascam HS-P82. I played with relative levels of each pair and found that parity gave the most pleasing balance (room vs. stereo image) and reach. Post included light noise reduction (RX), LF roll-off (< 100 Hz) to tame occasional rumbles, slight HF boost, and reverb, mostly to compensate for venue shortcomings.

This was my first recording using entirely Line Audio mics. I was fairly pleased for what I captured on a single stand. Curious to know what others think.
