Seems our sound design forum is leaning more and more towards gear and technique these days…which is actually pretty great because sound design occurs not only in the box but out in the world.
Has anyone had much experience with PZMs in the field? My objective is to record ambiences and ambient FX using a pair of PZMs but don't know of the proper way to go about it. One way would be to tape them together, back-to-back, with a large boundary between them (say a piece of plywood, an old door, etc.) From what I remember, the larger the boundary, the more bass response you'll achieve. Another approach would be to lay them on the ground with a fixed distance between them, kind of simulating a spaced-pair effect.
