Abstract

Phase relationships are a complex and mystifying phenomenon for early stage recording engineers and university students. In this paper, we take the analytical capabilities of time shifting plugin Auto-Align and use it to develop new methods of understanding phase interaction. We utilise the visualisations and time shifting features to assist in recording a multi-miked drum kit and in the post-production soundstage for a thirty-two piece big band. We explore new methodologies for phase interaction and microphone manipulation by running these two experiments and documenting the process using a combination of text, audio, and video.
