What is your prefered microphone spacing in AB stereo (spaced omnidirectional microphones) for field recordings, and why?

  • I've not used spaced omni in the field, but I could see the spacing varying based on the situation and desired sound. Commented Sep 10, 2015 at 16:07

I think its a matter of personal preference - mine being roughly shoulder-width apart. Since you're experimenting with spaced omni's, be sure to look into the Jecklin Disk technique.
