Today, 3rd Cycle students got a taste of surround recording in their Live Sound class. During the band clinic, Instructor Keith Morris set up the Trinnov SRP array that has been making its way around campus to give students experience in recording live for multi-speaker playback. The eight mic array was mentioned in our post from last Friday where 8th and 9th cycle students used it to record percussion and sax in their clinics. In today’s class, the 8-mic array was sent through an RME OctaMic preamp directly into an Alesis HD24 hard disc recorder. The whole mix will be played back in the Conservatory’s D Room which is optimized for surround playback and recording.
