Below is a screenshot from this exceptional solo violin performance.
Can anyone identify the microphones (type, if not model) in front of the stage?
Also, does this appear to be a good setup for recording this scenario? I gather that stereo is critical for capturing the reverb of a performance space. But I am wondering if the microphones are oddly close together – relative not only to the size of the space, but also relative to the distance from the performer?
It is likely that the mics were setup for a generic performance and not positioned for this one, so I am wondering if there is an reason to intentionally offset them from the performer? (I.e., the mics are centered on the stage, but the performer is standing stage right.)
