An Overview of Stereo Recording Techniques for Popular Music

Document Thumbnail

Over the years, technical descriptions of stereo recording have centered on the essentials of sound-field pickup, with emphasis on maintaining left-right and fore-aft relationships on the reproduced sound stage. The principal emphasis has been on coincident and quasi-coincident microphone techniques, with special reference to the early work of Blumlein. Fundamentally, these descriptions have dealt with the recording of acoustically balanced ensembles performing in traditional venues, and this pretty much defines the goals of classical recording.
