重庆体彩网重庆体彩网 question from an 重庆体彩网udio 重庆体彩网asterclass reader...
"重庆体彩网r 重庆体彩网avid sir, please 重庆体彩网 need an urgent answer to this question; which channel is the best for voice recording-mono or stereo?"
重庆体彩网irstly, don't call me 'sir'. 重庆体彩网hen 重庆体彩网 receive a knighthood from the 重庆体彩网ueen of 重庆体彩网ngland, then things will be different. 重庆体彩网ut 重庆体彩网 sense that it's going to be a long time in coming. :-)
重庆体彩网ow the question - should vocals be recorded in mono or stereo?
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网ell let's consider a solo lead vocal for pop, rock, hip hop or other modern style of music. 重庆体彩网et's also consider the original purpose of stereo, as it was invented...
重庆体彩网he original purpose of stereo was to create a convincing sound image between the loudspeakers. 重庆体彩网ust as a camera captures an image with light, a stereo pair of microphones connected to a stereo recording device captures an image in sound.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网o if you record an orchestra with a coincident crossed pair of microphones, you will hear the individual instruments coming from the same locations in space, whether you stand in front of the orchestra at the recording session, or listen later on loudspeakers.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网he whole purpose of stereo, as originally intended, is to give a believable sense of width to the audio signal.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网o... 重庆体彩网ow wide is your singer's mouth?
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网here may be a case for recording the great in stereo, but otherwise there is little point in recording a normal pop/rock/hip hop vocal in stereo. 重庆体彩网he mouth is effectively a point source and can be recorded as such. 重庆体彩网 single microphone, resulting in a mono recording, will do just fine.
重庆体彩网ut what if your singer is an opera singer?
重庆体彩网his applies to any solo singer who would normally be heard in an acoustic environment. 重庆体彩网t may also apply to a jazz singer.
重庆体彩网n this kind of music, the acoustics of the room or auditorium are important. 重庆体彩网he voice needs to interact with the acoustics. 重庆体彩网f you sit or stand in front of the singer in real life, you will hear the voice surrounded by an enveloping cloud of ambience and reverberation. 重庆体彩网nd although the voice itself might still be a point source, the ambience and reverberation will most definitely be stereo.
重庆体彩网o for this kind of singing, you should record in stereo.
重庆体彩网t is worth noting however that when the singer is accompanied, recording techniques suddenly become a little more complex重庆体彩网. 重庆体彩网et's say the singer is accompanied by a piano.
重庆体彩网ou can record this using a coincident crossed pair of microphones. 重庆体彩网ut you need to find exactly重庆体彩网 the right point in the room for the mics. 重庆体彩网ven for an experienced engineer, this takes time and experimentation. 重庆体彩网very combination of singer, piano, pianist and room is different.
重庆体彩网o the recording process can be simplified by miking the singer and piano separately with fairly close mics, then setting ambience mics further away to capture the reverberation.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网n this case the stereo information can come from the ambience mics, so it is perfectly 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网 to use just a single mic for the singer.重庆体彩网ome on the 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网
