i have the 661mk3. same scrissor-like limited signal effects and distortion as described(661 internal gain at -18db: brickwalling occurs at -7db with a 12mV/Pa (‑38 dBV) sensitivity condenser mic)..problem seems to be the preamps overloading(analog stage) with hot signals, with a -20db pad on the mic output signal, shouting in the mic > the marantz 661mk3 ...

I assume you want the microphone positions to be noticeable in the output. So you'll need to mix these 4 signals into a surround sound format. At its most basic, you could record 4 channels, and play them back into 4 loudspeakers that are placed in the same pattern you used for your microphones. The most common surround formats use 5 speakers (L front, R ...

This is a problem that occurred during the original recording. Sounds very much like the tape capstan rubbers are slipping and the tape is not being kept up-to-speed during the recording. There is only one piece of software that has any hope of fixing this, and it's "Capstan" from Celemony (makers of Melodyne). Make sure you are sitting on a good solid ...

If the setting/surroundings call for a small cardioid, how about a DPA 4099 on goose-necks, as shown in the review video at With only one mic up close (for isolation), it may be beneficial that 4099 has a pretty even off axis response, so the sound coming in to the side of the mic also sounds fine, only at a lower level. ...

If you're looking for isolation & a fairly open-field sound, then maybe a boundary mic would help. Experiment with mounting positions - on, in, or on the wall behind the piano.

@Mark, thanks for your suggestion. while the amplitude modulation is used to correct the spectrum of stimulus signal. In fact, a pure exponential sweep sine signal without amplitude modulation doesn't have a white (flat) spectrum: due to the fact that the instantaneous frequency sweeps slowly at low frequencies, and much faster at high frequencies, the ...
