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:
