Quad Output Mics/Pearl DS70

Are there any alternatives to the Pearl DS70?

Pearl DS70


What are the problems I will encounter if I placed musicians around this type of microphone for a single chassis mic/4 channel recording? I will first try to get the best acoustic/physical balance while tracking, but without getting too anal about it. Then at mix, I will (if necessary) fine tune the level and panoramic positioning of the 4 mic outputs and perhaps add spatial and tonal sweetening...

Is there anything obviously wrong with this approach?

I don't know any stereo microphone with double outputs, except the Pearl. In the old days there were Neumann Q69 and AKG C424 quadraphonic microphones. They very rarely pop-up on Ebay.

Not an apples-to-apples comparison, but in this general category (and from the sister company) there is also the enigmatic Milab SRND 360:

On further research, I found the Antelope Edge Quadro.

Two Austrian Audio OC818's can give you four outputs.

any ambisonic mic system would do (and a double m/s-system needs just three capsules for full coverage and/or upmixing) but i doubt i would wanna use a single mic system in this situation...

I don’t own or have experience with these, but the Nevaton mics I do have are very good.

That is a very pure recording. Reminds me of some of my favourite Chesky or Peter Moore single-mic recordings. I love everything about that mic (except the price)...I'll have to keep buying lottery tickets, I guess.

The Sennheiser Ambeo might also be an option within a budget limited situation..

You then use their plugin to align the caps and decide how to mix it.. you can do all kinda things, you might want to look into it.. i think it’s pretty cool, especially when used for 360 stuff or cool videos things..

In case of a more classical situation, where music only is involved, there might be others that probably sound a bit better and could provide a better “picture”..

Nice recording. How was it made? One stereo set-up?

Thank you.

XY pair of KM184s for drum OH, U47 for kick, SM57 capturing slide guitar through a blues junior, Brauner something on vox and M149 on acoustic guitar. Live recording in a big studio through a Neve 88R, with the bass amp in the room. I can't remember if I managed to blend in any DI or mic signal for the bass in the mix... if so it was minimal. The bass guitar sound is basically from the other mics. Mixed in my tiny studio (at the time) on Cubase 5. I think the only effect I used was the convolution reverb built into cubase.
