Glad you enjoyed it !....one of the musicians observed that it was no walk in the park learning it, about 12 hours each of personal practice, 7 hours of combined rehearsal, not to mention the complex cross-rhythms: 'neuroplasticity in action' she called it

Very nice. Could you briefly describe the space? Thanks, as always, for sharing!

It was an old art-deco era ballroom, small audience (around 60), wooden floor, the players were on floor level a few metres in front of the audience. I guess the mics were close enough to the performers (and pointing down towards the floor) to reduce the effect of the room, but I didn't want any more traffic noise to intrude than already did (it's on the intersection of 2 major roads !)

Thanks for these fine clips - it shows the OM1 as a truly natural (un-hyped) microphone - no exaggerated anything. I have a pair myself which I use mainly for environmental sounds (a very lightweight remote kit, plugged directly into a handheld recorder). Anyhow all my personal OM1 tests show the same natural character, as can be heard here, and I love them for it. They may lack the final resolution from some of the really expensive omnis, but really, these are highly recommended for everyone seeking nice omni-mics for their collection.

Hi studer58,

is that still 34 cm spacing? I like this clip the best.

Yes 34 cms for the piano recordings, 45 cms for these latest strings and woodwinds ones of the last 5 days or so

This sounds magnificent. How far back did you have the omnis from the strings? I recorded a symphony recently with these as outriggers and CM-3 as an ORTF main pair. I was getting some harshness on the strings but I'm thinking I was either too high above the strings or perhaps they were just harsh sounding instruments. The concert was Vivaldi's Gloria and Handel's Coronation Anthem 1/ Zadok the Priest. The musicians were not using baroque strings and I'm wondering if that might have been some of the harshness. I'll try to post some mp3s tonight.
