Microphones

Calundronius Recordings employs the following types of microphones:

  • Oktava MC-012 small diaphragm condenser microphones with selectable cardiod, hypercardioid or omnidirectional heads
  • AKG CK94 small diaphragm condenser microphones with figure-8 directional pattern heads
  • AKG C4000B large diaphragm condenser microphones, with switchable pattern (cardiod / hypercardioid / omnidirectional)
  • Neumann TLM-103 large diaphragm condenser microphones, with cardioid directional pattern

Using these microphones, we have achieved excellent results:

  • Direct instrument miking, with multitrack recording
  • Stereo miking, near-coincident pair
  • Stereo miking, M-S pair
  • Stereo miking, ORTF pair
  • Stereo miking, Blumlein pair
  • Wide-spaced omnis
  • Wide-spaced omnis with stereo fill-in

The particular recording technique suitable for a recording project varies according to the number of performers and the venue.
Direct input from instruments/mixers or mixing board may also be euseful in some situations.
