M5 Matched Pair in X/Y Coincident Configuration: Recording A String Quartet
Show details
Dec 10, 2013
Featuring the M5 Matched Pair to demonstrate different stereo applications, we recorded Accent Strings performing the Bach classic, "Air on a G string" at the Australian Hall in Sydney.

Using the RØDE Stereo Bar, the M5 microphones were placed in an X/Y coincident configuration due to the smaller size of the ensemble. The microphones were placed at a 90˚ angle with help from the Stereo Bar's mounting guide & markings. Using the spacers on the Stereo Bar, the capsules were able to be placed directly above one another so that sound reached both capsules at the same time, preventing phasing & mono compatibility issues in the final recording.

The RØDE Stereo bar will be released in early 2014.
