The CHM 99 Condenser Hanging Microphone provides both ease of use and a high level of functionality. There is hardly any more affordable and simpler solution for recording choirs at worship centers. Suspended from the ceiling or a beam, the hanging microphone is aligned and then fixed in the correct position. Now use the spring steel clamp to adjust the correct angle, and off you go!

XY stereo recording

Using two CHM 99 hanging microphones in an XY configuration (coincident pair) is a good way to make stereo recordings, particularly of choirs. However, sound source locations are defined only by intensity differences. Adjusting the angle between the microphones determines the width and depth of the stereo image.

ORTF stereo recording

Developed by the French Broadcasting Authority, this technique differs from the XY technique by recording not only intensity differences, but also delay differences. The capsules are aligned at an angle of precisely 110 and 170 mm / 6.7 in. apart.

    I used two as a crossed pair to record a church-based choral performance. Mounting needed a Heath-Robinson arrangement involving fishing line and small brass hinges, but they captured the sound of the choir and accompanying organ and piano most authentically.
