I have a question for those who understand the technical qualities of sound. How significant would the differences in quality be with regard to sound wave, vibration etc., when comparing recorded bells(ex: Tibetan Sound Bowls) versus live bells. Let's assume that each comparison would make certain factors equal; i.e analog versus digital, and type of sound equipment versus live bells.
This interests me as a new mediator in what might be gained by incorporating some actual bell meditation in with my use of recorded bells.I know this may be cutting it pretty fine, however I find this to be an interesting topic and I appreciate your input as connoisseurs of sound!
Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge!
Visit my websites below to find out. When recording singing bowls - you must find proper recording angles (loudest vs detailed sound) and distances. Try combining dynamic/electret and condenser mics. If mixing with vocals - record bowls with separate mics and vocal with separate or do it in separate sessions with the same recording equipment (so you can work around vocal a little bit).
Generally good singing bowl recordings (live sounding warm meditative instead of cold sterile artificial studio) are not easy to achieve, but not impossible. It's rather about creating a soundspace in which you produce variations, than producing soundspace from variations.
Thank you ayamahambho !
