As ORTF in church hall

Uwe67, 03.03.2013
Something behaved and expected with a dose of skepticism, the combination of SHURE KSM137 in ORTF ceiling suspension on TASCAM DP24 surpassed the expectations clearly with 2x30m SUMMERCALE SC-GALILEO 238PLUS (with meticulous soldering and insulation) to NEUTRIK XLR!
Not only the SNR ratio of this combination is impressed, but also the realization that the "microphones" "altar" and "pulpit" are not absolutely necessary for the semi-automated layman who is in practice to produce a simple audio CD recording.
The acoustic dissolution / localization / linguistic intelligibility of this combination amazed even in very quiet, speaking, five-year-old children in the Christmas play.
In the end, the dynamics of the dynamo convinced completely of this combination, because the piano, the choir, the brasswind orchestra and the organ play side by side and together in the altar area.
The qualitative difference to capsules of B & K or DPA is certainly present. However, this requires other mixers.
This combination delivers broadcast standard at 44/16. Impressive.
