Hi All,

I’ve been working on a fairly big Ambience library. I’m finishing up on the editing soon and am making selections for the library.
It will consist of a large amount of city ambiences (long takes) amongst others.

I have recorded most ambiences/atmospheres with a double mic setup (AB (dpa4060’s) and MS (MKH50/30)).
The idea was to have a backup and a choice in post production of the library.
Listening to both setups I’ve come to the conclusion I like the sound of both setups (for each their own reasons).
I’m thinking about releasing them as ‘Dual Perspective’ takes, to clarify the overlap in naming, ie:

    CITY Backstreet chaotic with close voices, honking traffic passing slowly through crowd, Dual Perspective Morning Static AB.wav
    CITY Backstreet chaotic with close voices, honking traffic passing slowly through crowd, Dual Perspective Morning Static MS.wav
(where city will be replaced by actual cityname)

My question is this: If the recordings have a similar perspective of the ambience, are you interested in both recordings?
And if not which would you prefer? AB or MS, and why?

And regarding the actual metadata, do you like mic setup in the filename or as a metadata tag in soundminer?

Cheers,

Arnoud
