ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the process of developing mic technique that can record stereo sound, either in a studio or out on location and compatible with current television production techniques. It is important to use a mic technique for recording a stereo sound signal in order to recreate the original spatial relationship between the sound sources on replay. Electronics engineer Alan Blumlein used a pair of figure-of-eight ribbon mics crossed at 90 degrees to develop a suitable mic technique.
