- for Kelly : I have lost my notes, but the height was certainly +/- 2meters, and the distance from the front line somewhere between 2,5 and 2,8 meters .
Ok, so similar height and distance. I had assumed it was a closer miking for the Farina but so many factors come into play such as the instruments being played, the room, the musicians themselves. But very nice balance on both.
