Question about Recording Surround Athmo with four large diaphragm microphones


Hey People!

Does anybody have any experience with recording surroundings with 4 microphones? I want to make recordings for quadrophonic sound.

I want to do that and i only have 4 large diaphragm microphones (Audiotechnica 2050) so its not a question about which equipment would be better, i am just wondering which mic-placement would be the best. 

I tried a double-ORTF somehow but i don’t know if there is not something better…

I would be so grateful for any advice.

Thank you! 🙂



Since that mic is a multi pattern microphone, you could actually create a ambisonic recording with them!
