Soundspace

The “Klangraum / Soundspace” is a virtual learning space for the field of sound design. The aim is to be able to listen to and compare different miking of instruments. Two different rooms are available: On a stage, instruments can be miked and correct choices tried out. In a recording studio, the focus is on the positioning of the microphone relative to the instrument. For this purpose, different microphones are available that can be moved 360° around the sound source. In this way, differences in sound can be experienced and the relationship between pick-up positions and microphone types can be understood. The auditory impression is calculated live on the basis of real sound recordings. For this purpose, recordings were made with several microphones of the same type at a total of six positions around the respective instrument. They are recorded in an open database so that further recordings with other microphone types and instruments can easily be added. The “sound room” offers the opportunity to evaluate the effect of microphone position and selection when recording different instruments without much effort and to acquire basic knowledge for recording practice.
