Spaced Pair Using Earthworks TCK40 Omnis
I absolutely adore the sound that the Earthworks QTC40 microphone records. The sound is phenomenal for working with choral groups. I've experimented with several different ways, and found that by using the QTC40 mics in a spaced pair, about 6 inches apart and maybe 9 feet in the air, I can achieve a wonderful choir sound. This is all maybe 25 feet away from the choir, and they are also miked by some Neumann KM184s for each part. The resulting sound is mixed together, favoring the Neumanns, and is smooth, blended, and full.
