December 19th 2018: Preparing for site redesign... Following the recent unwelcome hacker attack, I'm making good progress with a full site redesign which I'm hoping to launch shortly. In the interim, though, I'll still be continuing my monthly multitrack uploads and gradually adding new video content to the Mixing Secrets For The Small Studio resource pages in support of the newly released second edition. If you'd like to assist my ongoing development of this site, please consider joining the Cambridge-MT Patrons. Thanks for your understanding. Mike S.

This microphone setup used five Avantone CK1 microphones (with their cardioid capsules) to record the horizontal dispersion characteristics of the same flute as in Multimic Setup 1.
