This is probably the simplest stereo technique in general use. In almost any situation it produces an evenly-spread stereo image with good localization, often without the need for spot or ambient miking. Setup is particularly quick and simple since the capsule spacing and angles are fixed, with only a single stand and microphone cable required. Placement is relatively uncritical and the technique produces good results even in the hands of an inexperienced or hasty user.
- For recordings with ORTF technique
- Placement relatively uncritical
- Good stereo imaging
- For a very wide range of recording applications
- For 12 / 48 V phantom powering
