Usually i don't do this, but i'd like to get observations, thoughts, considerations, regarding two different recordings i did today.
I put them into a playlist (with 2 songs) in Soundcloud:
I recorded mainly for testing the acoustic of a particular room, i'm going to use for future multipart recordings.
But, in the process, i recorded the same piece by using 2 different bows, while all the other variables are equal.
I used a matched pair Oktava MK012 (cardioid) small diaphragm condenser microphones in a spaced configuration, about 3 meters from the playing position. Every song has a melody part and an harmonic/rhytmic part, and i played the first in one position (left) and the latter in another physical position (right). There are no added artificial reverb/eq/dynamic reduction, etc.
The song is a traditional northern italian mazurca. I tried to play the 2 version in the same way (i always change something while i'm playing).
So: which recording (bow) do you like more (if there is one? :D ).
What speaker are you listening with? Laptop speaker? A best speaker? Phone?......
Thank you very much. :)
