I have to provide examples of effects of acoustics on mic placement/choice and on recordings for my college portfolio. Theoretically I pretty much know what we are talking about, but what would you suggest doing to prove I know these effects?
J, Microphone placement is usage dependent. You must experiment with distances from the source, microphone type for usage and a host of other variables. We have found that only experience over time will produce quality results.
I am an acoustic engineer with over 30 years’ experience in the business. My technology has been used in Electric Lady Land Studios, Sony Music of New York, Cello Music and Films founded by Mark Levinson, and Saltmines Studios in Mesa, Arizona, along with hundreds of others.
