On 22 September 2008 27 members and guests converged on the boardroom at NPR Headquarters to listen to and watch Ron Streicher in his presentation called Microphones: The Physics, Metaphysics, and Philosophy. Ron is past president of the Audio Engineering Society, and is an independent audio consultant and recording engineer, specializing in live performances. For 18 years he was associated with the Aspen Music Festival -- 10 of those years as Audio Production Manager. It would be difficult to find anyone more heavily engaged in classical music recording than Ron. His book, The New Stereo Soundbook is now in its third edition.
...
Ron began his presentation by describing a recording as a "sonic illusion. The corresponding audio production is the science and art of creating that illusion, which hopefully convinces you that you are there at the concert hall or performing space, or the performers are here in your space. He likened the recording to a painting, where silence is the canvas, sound sources are the colors, and the microphones are the paint brushes. The illusion may be a re-creative one or a creative one: with the latter, the final illusion comes together only after it emerges from the loudspeakers. A fundamental key is the proper selection and use of the microphones. Ron briefly outlined the various types (dynamic, condenser, ribbon), and their basic polar patterns (omni, cardioid, dipolar). He then applied the types and patterns to various recording situations, using some of the unique microphone qualities to enhance or limit characteristics of the spaces they are used in. For example, the null of a dipole microphone can be "pointed" at an interfering sound source rather than simply pointing the main lobe at the performer. Ron illustrated this with the common situation of recording of a choir situated behind the orchestra: ordinarily the orchestra would dominate the recording, but by placing the dipole over the orchestra the null can be pointed at the orchestra to maximize the pickup of the choir while minimizing the orchestra. Several other examples of null-pointing were shown. It is important that the microphone response off-axis is acceptably flat in order to not spoil the sonic illusion. Ron reminded us that polar patterns are three-dimensional.
