The N8’s open, natural character and expansive tonal range, make it the ideal mic to capture instrument sections like woodwind, string, and brass. Its far-field functionality and figure-of-8 polar pattern allow for the blending of the direct sound of your instrument with expansive, dimensional room sound.
The far-field N8 delivers a balanced treble/bass ratio from as far as 20 feet away, supplementing the direct sound of an instrument with expansive, dimensional room sound. Recording a section is made simple by fixing two N8s in the Blumlein configuration of the NUVO Stereo Kit and perching it 6 to 10 feet in front of the instrumentalists. By moving the N8 or N8 Stereo Kit array closer or farther from the source, one can find the desired treble/bass ratio as well as balanced direct sound/room sound.
