Technical Specifications |
The original recordings were made using Schoeps microphones, cardioid and a figure eight patterns, in a Mid/Side (M/S) configuration. Recorded on a HHB DAT recorder, with no processing in the analog signal chain, was used as the master recorder.
Once in the digital domain, except for decoding M/S matrix into Left/Right (X-Y) stereo format conversions, no other signal processing was done. All transfer and editing was performed using Digidesign ProTools with WAVES M/S Matrix plug-in. The edited Sound Designer II files were converted to AIFF and WAV file formats for pre-mastering on DVD.
All sound levels were recorded with the thought mind, that in the analog world a +4 would register on professional equipment as a -20, or -18 sfDB. In the digital consumer world it would register 14 db down from the professional level.
This means that output voltage on the analog would be a 1.23 volts when you run a 1kH tone at -20, or -18 depending on the way you have your equipment calibrated. On the consumer equipment it would output a .776 volts.
