Climbing Everest Barefoot: the Emerson String Quartet Da-Hong Seetoo's Recording Tools

Sidebar 1: Da-Hong Seetoo's Recording Tools

"I used four Schoeps MK2H omni [microphone] heads on bodies of my own design in a square arrangement in the middle of the Quartet, about 70" from the musicians, going straight to hard drive at 24-bits/44.1kHz. I burned CDs for the Quartet from each day's performances. I edited the sessions using Sound Designs software."
