The schoeps V4u is a terrific universal studio mic as Hudson reports.

Among other things It is magnificent on double bass in a jazz combo.

Imagine a stage where the soprano and mezzo singers are to the left of the conductor and the tenor and bass soloists are to the right. Although probably not heard at your concert seat as a left / right image, it is important to offer the vocal soloist in her rightful position. That is on the left side.

You don't record the singer and put her in the center of the stereo picture. Instead you "float" her vocal image somewhere on the left side just left of center in the stereo picture.

This is done by picking up the singer with two cardioid mics and panning the left channel to the left at 8 o'clock and the other mic of the stereo pair panned left at 11 o'clock.

The voice then can float on the left side with air around its sound, never sounding 2D or with a pasted on panned sound.

2 Schoeps V4 is an incredible tool for offering this pleasant and satisfying sound.

Purchase in Germany to avoid a usurious mark up.

If I am understanding you correctly, in the situation that you describe (4 singers), this would require 8 microphones. Is that correct?

When I talk about the 4 singers on stage, I am giving an example about how they are standing. Women to the left, men to the right.

In my example, I am talking about a single lady singer in a recording session.

If there are 4 singers, then yes, 8 mics--although usually, singing separately, they could use the same 2 mics. Sometimes they will all sing together.

One can fake a Schoeps V4 with a MK4 plus a ring attachment. Actually, Schoeps used to do just that with their tube microphones.
