Coincident Taping Methods - Binaural Technique

    Dummy Head SetupThe last of these near coincident methods commonly used is the Binaural technique. This is intended specifically for playback on a pair of headphones. It is most often setup as a pair of Omnidirectional microphones placed onto a dummy head or worn on ones own head. This yields results which are quite impressive , with a very realistic illusion of space in both the vertical and horizontal planes. The quasi binaural method employs two Omnidirectional microphones spaced about 75 to 100 cm apart with a sound absorbing baffle in between them. This provides enough cross channeling information to yield very good results when played back on loudspeakers (which a dummy head recording won't do). This is the stand mounted method we recombined for our Micro-Mics.
