Anthony Poole Posted August 10, 2004 Share Posted August 10, 2004 First of all, I'm glad to see the message board back. Congratulations to all concerned in coming up with this version. I like all the facial expressions I've listened to a few Proms over the Web and am curious about the BBC microphone placing, in relation to the organ. I heard Naji Hakim's recital yesterday and the balance sounded like the microphones were right in front of the Great, which was very, very prominent, while the other departments sounded like they were a more 'natural' balance. I'm not sure whether this has anything to do with the internal layout of the instrument, or the Beeb's microphone placement, or whether the sound of the Web bears any relationship to the sound heard by radio listeners on either FM or digital, or the audience in the hall. I've no way of telling, as I live in New York. I'd be interested to hear other people's observations. Thanks! Anthony Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
