Berlin Ambience techniques, July 2012
At the occasion of the VDT seminar "Ambience recording" in Berlin (July 2012) a collection of 5 simultaneous recordings with 6 different surround ambience microphone setups was produced. These test samples enable a direct comparison between the different setups (and recording principles) and therefore a very precise assessment of the properties of the recording techniques in different recording locations.
Furthermore, the test samples enable a blindfolded listening test, as any loudness differences between the setups were equalized. For a repetition of the listening test, the detailed test and recording description, the listening test questionnaire and the audio samples are available for download:
- Detailed Description of Recording setups, venues and listening test (pdf, 3.4 MB)
- Listening test questionnaire
- Audio-Samples (690 MB)
- Ambience Recording paper (German, English) and slides (German, English) from Tonmeistertagung 2012 and AES Convention, New York, 2013
