Blumlein
« on: April 19, 2003, 01:16:29 PM »
Okay so one of my u89s came with a schock mount that I can screw the mic down to very securely. Perfect for suspending a mic upside down for Blumlein or M/S!

Now this is a dumb question but do you need to decode Blumlein like you would with M/S? Logically I would say yes but I want to make sure.

Obviously I can decode on my computer but what about mixing down blumlein on the fly using a V2 or other preamp with an m/s circuit?

Logically to me, you would not need to decode, as you cannot adjust blumlein like you can m/s.  It is just xy with a different polar pattern selected - to me.

I do not have direct knowledge, just saying that my logic says differently.   ???

Thanks guys... I was picturing the orientation wrong... more like a m/s witha rear lobe... "+" if you will as oppossed to an x/y style setup "x" if you will.

I have only listened to a few blumlein recordings and the definitely lack bass... I'll just have to pick my spots carefully.

Glad to know I've got this option though!

I'm only thinking of using it for acoustic music or on-stage jazz recordings right now.

If by chance I'm in a pa taping situation where I can run u89s blumlein FOB I'll give it a try for sure  8)

Tim,

I wouldn't run blumlein in any other situation other than close-micing and on-stage applications.

Trey,

What would keep you from being able to get you batteries and other gear here for the shows?

I would not put the batteries in a checked bag, I would carry them on.

If you carry them on and they're concerned about the batts, you can break out the documentation, and after a minor delay you're on your way.

If you check them and they're concerned about the batts, your bag will not make it to your final destination.

Trey......
Here is a document from ecocharge regarding sla's that was developed for helping w/ questions by airlines in regards to battery systems. (bagged from Oade board)

http://www.ecocharge.com/PDF_forms/transportationpolicy.pdf

edit;
OK,...... Now I see that it was directed to your post on the Oade forum....
Duh!, oh well.

Brian Skalinder;
Maybe this should go in the archive section here?

Peace
Mike


So here is a question, would this documentation apply to our homemade SLA's as well, without the ecocharge logo?  If not, anyone know where I can get some ecocharge stickers???
