Yes, there is absolutely no difference between pure Blumlein and MS Blumlein. They are identical in all respects. The angles of view and ambiophonic segments are identical in position.

Yes, I'd wondered too why Boojum was bothering with the 'extra redundancy' :-) of gathering MS Blumlein data. Perhaps because:

1. He'd expanded his definition of "MS Blumlein" to include M/S ratios other than pure 1:1 ?
or
2. He wanted to also look into minute, highly-nuanced differences between conventional Blumlein and "MS Blumlein" arrays - such as tone quality or central image solidity. But such a study is beyond the scope of the original test, that was intended to illuminate the strange phase relationships one must contend with. Besides, jangling keys alone wouldn't suffice for tonal testing.

Ach, these image walkaround tests could probably be banged out quickly in the back garden. :-)

Let me take this up with my attorneys. I will inform you of their advice. LMAO. I am not sure if I can manage a drawl. Let's see what I can come up with.

I figured the compass points would be the easiest to translate and would be free of ambiguous audio double-speak and vagueness. How about if I mumble and chant the full circle and announce the 45 degree points as I pass them? I am appallingly bad at taking direction but if this little gig is to be of any help to others maybe I ought to bend, this once. Just don't push it.


Cheers

We get ~240 of overcast days here and have the highest annual rainfall for any US city on the mainland: Astoria, Oregon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So if it is not bloody pissing down rain drops the size of bloody tanners tomorrow I will have a go. You guys are gonna owe me.

Windy with light rain today.

The lawyers say I can recite poetry musically, but not sing. Lawyers! LOL I will replicate Edison's first cylinder recording.

I will be including the separate MS Blumlein to see if it is better and how much better. There are some strong proponents of MS and MS Blumlein in this forum. The logic that the recording will sound better when the mic is pointed at the sound rather than the edge of the sound makes sense to me. But let's see. Any ideas on testing are welcomed, as is a sunny, windless day.

Thanks! I guess no one heard the 14 edits in it (7 in the intro)?

Good!
