I still rather like the Cozart-fine mercury recordings with 3 mics. I am not aware of anyone recording in quadrophonic though. Ambience microphones yes, but that is emphatically NOT quad.

Well I saw the equipment and was told by the staff. They can record the full orchestra with 4 microphones, they are hanging from the ceiling.

If I hang 8 microphones from the ceiling do I get 7.1 Dolby?

I have no idea how they do the 6.1 audio, to me it is al craps.

Quadraphonic actually is pretty common on masters. Some vinyl have quad channels. New types of stylus were developed to track the quadraphonic. However, I am not interested, stereo distorts enough the sound already.

All this is silly now
The latest adda is superb. What is needed is a large magazine type publication per and regarding the recording taking the place of the "album jacket" packaged along with a thumbdrive in hi res. This won't happen because it will soon be illegal to have hard copies IMO
Hope not. And there BTW, is the *REAL* actual value of existing Vinyl, CDs, tape etc. You can touch it!

Quadrophonic existed for a very short period of time in the 70s. That is known to anyone who was either there or has the power of google. However to stretch that to 'live orchestral recordings are recorded in quadraphonic' is extreme.

Just to repeat. Using 4 microphones does not make something quadrophonic. It just means there were 4 tracks recorded to mix to two for release.

I know, the point is not the records, it is that in live recordings they use many microphones.

In the art center in Ottawa, they use 4 microphones for 'ambiance' from the ceiling, there are 2 others when they record applauses. and if there is a piano they use 2 more near it, or sometimes 2 near the conductor, everything is recorded for archival. At least 4 tracks are keep. That was only my point, 4 tracks. I thought they could remove someone coughing but they cannot. I heard a few live recordings and you can hear people coughing.
