Stefan Kiessling – organist
Microphoning, stereo techniques, surround sound, acoustical problems - here you will find calculation and simulation tools that I created and used in the process of my recordings.
for calculating the placement of two microphones for an optimal stereo image.
Polar Patterns of Microphones
Interactive simulation of different directivities of microphones.
Polar Patterns in Stereo and Surround Setups
Calculation of the resulting directional characteristics, stereo widths and distributions when mixing several mixing of several coincident microphones, e.g. MS, Double MS, MMS, spreaded double MS.
Recording in MMS method for a particularly flexible stereo image. The mix of the three microphones and thus the sound of the recording can be manipulated in the browser.
The Comb Filter Effect
Simulation of the comb filter effect caused by ground reflection as a function of position, angle and pattern of the microphone - graphically and audibly.
The Comb Filter Effect of Stereo Setups
Calculation of comb filter effects with stereo setups, especially when the stereo width/mono summation is changed in post.
Calculation and graphical representation of various noises that appear in the recording chain.
Recording with two MMS packages on a stereo bar for a very flexible sound image in stereo and surround. The mix of the microphones and thus the sound of the recording can be manipulated in the browser.
Tool to turn tablets/smartphones in to a wireless recording light.
Recording with 9 microphones for a very flexible sound image. The mix of the microphones and thus the sound of the recording can be manipulated in the browser. Offers surround sound as well.
Place sound sources with test sound or custom sounds as well as microphones on a virtual stage and listen to the result.
Organ in a concert hall
Organ recording with microphones on the ground.
Organ recording utilising an MXY setup for a very flexible stereo image that can be adjusted in post. Surround sound is possible as well.
