I am on the look out for participants for a listening session which will take place in the Newton building of the University of Salford. The listening session is about surround sound music recording techniques. Participants will be asked what they prefer and some “one or the other” type of questions on other aspects of the sound. The session should take around 25 minutes. The venue will be Studio D on the ground floor of the Newton Building, Peel Campus.
There are two ways of recording surround sound for music being compared. One is a traditional technique, where many microphones are used in a space and the other is the Soundfield method which is a single microphone. These techniques have big physical differences between them which could determine how well they perform when recording music. A good set of results will show which is the better one to use and why. More detailed information on the project can be found here and here.
If you are based in or around Salford University and you would be interested in taking part please fill out the contact form below or pop down to Studio D on the dates and times of the test for more information. Remember that session will take around 25 minutes, I will do my best to give you a slot that suits you the best.
The following slots are available.
Monday the 10th: 9.30, 10.05
Thursday the 13th: 09:30, 10:05, 10:40, 11:15, 11:50, 12:25, 13:05.
Once again, thank you very much for reading and signing up!
If you have a couple of moments, why not check out an online web-test which will help towards the listening session proper.
