thanks for your comments. Yes, A1 and B1 are the same take #1. A1 is recorded through one mic, B1 through another one. Both mics were tied together as close as it goes, and recorded on separate tracks. Both tracks are then treated as mono tracks and seperately mixed down to a stereo wav file panned dead center, so that you get a stereo file with mono material, if that makes sens to you. That's how A1 and B1 are two separate stereo files, A1 containing only the mono material of mic A1 and B1 only the monomaterial of mic B1.
to really judge the sound of the recordings you would have to wear either decent headphones or listen through a decent stereo system or studio monitors. Best would be to use the wav files from the dropbox link, as soundcloud is always compromising the sound quite a bit; the differences come through, though.
BTW, none of the mics used is a 'cheapo' though the price differences are significant.
So of course, precisely talking, if one ties two cardioids together, they are slightly in different places, but we're not talking science here
. That is as far I can take to record the same take with two different mics at roughly the same spot...
Music is a big continent with different landscapes and corners. Some of them I do visit frequently, some from time to time and some I know from hearsay only ...
