I'm getting ready to go out and capture some sounds for a possible boutique library and would like to survey you all.
I have MK41 and MK5 capsules, a KMR81i, many dynamic mics etc. but no really good M/S mic or figure-8 mic to make a good M/S out of.
Is it worth the trouble to try and find an MK6 I could borrow, or get my hands on a Neumann 191 to record with?
I'm basically going to gain access to a state-of-the-art digital printing facility as well as a custom mill which has one of those super pressure water drills, computerized laser sculpting equipment, etc. etc. etc. and I'm wondering if just mono is going to be enough for this opportunity because I most likely won't have a second chance to record these things.
I plan on doing ORTF for the ambiences I find, but what configuration is your preference for great spot effects such as machinery and small servos and robots and things?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
