Interview to Florian and Aki in 2015 by Japanese Sound Engineer and Recording Researcher Kazuya Nagae
Please let me know your concept of an ideal recording.
In a good recording the listener can fully concentrate on the music without thinking about technical details. Also important are a good sounding hall which fits the music and a good balance between the different instruments.We think the right positioning of the main microphone system is the most important factor, because the main microphones make about 90% of the sound. A height difference of only 10cm will lead to a big difference of the whole sound.
What is the most important factor regarding your equipment?
The most important factor is reliability. We want to use our equipment like an instrument without taking care of technical details. Instead of losing time with setting up complicated technical setups, we want to concentrate on the sound as quick as possible.Back
