This week Charlie takes us to Ultimate Rhythm Studios to show us four popular overhead techniques.

1. Neumann KM84s in an xy.

2. MXL V67Ns in ORTF.

3. Spaced cardioids using Audio Technica 4050s.

4. MXL R144s in a Blumlein pair.

We also get to see Charlie’s personal kit in it’s natural habitat.

The downloadable full-bandwidth, multi-track audio files include all four overhead pairs as well as the rest of the kit.
