The three samples in this series were recorded simultaneously (from
approximately the same position) with three different standard stereo
microphone arrangements: mid-side (mixed into L-R), X-Y cardioid, and
with a Jecklin disk.
The 5'34" recordings capture a long freight train (with a helicopter
flying overhead) passing approximately 10 feet in front of the
microphones (from left to right) in Berkeley, California (USA) on
September 17, 2006.
This recording was made with a pair of Sennheiser MKH-800
microphones in a mid-side configuration (inside a Rycote blimp).
The "mid" microphone was set to "wide cardioid" and the "side"
was set to "figure-8", with the array connected to a Sound Devices 744T
digital recorder at 96K/24bits. Mixed into conventional A-B stereo in Logic Pro.
A compressed (256Kbps) MP3 version of this recording is available in the
microphone-comparison-freight-train-mp3 sample pack.
