2 Stereo Image Considerations
A number of criteria need to be considered in order to ensure the stereo image sounds the best that it can. These considerations will influence what recording array you use and how you will manipulate the array before you commit to a recording take.
Audio production is a very subjective business. Entire research studies have been dedicated to see if it is possible to establish a set of words which can be objectively used to describe recorded sound. For example, one person’s ‘harsh’ could be another person’s ‘bright’, so having agreement on what is which can be helpful. With this in mind, this section has been written as an attempt to do the same but please keep in mind that the only rule to follow is to experiment.
