The room is "multipurpose", a word that should, according to Acquisitions Producer, Steve Zakar, send chills down the spine of any engineer, but even more so for an engineer recording classical music.In a word, the space is very, very dead.They've tried many microphones, engineering tricks, and arrangements to raise their level of quality as high as possible.
"We knew the reputation of the M 50 and heard that the M 150 was on its way," said Zakar
"The M 150s have a wonderful sense of space because they are amazingly transparent," remarked Zakar
"We started with the microphones a ways off from the instrument, but kept backing them up until they were six feet away," recalled Zakar
