No, it's a mono feed.  That generally works much better.

I just stacked the two speakers one on top of the other, to excite the room a little more.

Stereo mic'ing though.

There's a thread around here somewhere with photos and dimensions of our chambers.

Here's one thread at least.  These pix show just one KRK...now I have the second speaker stacked on top of that one.

Pages 9 & 10 have a lot of info.

Jim, have you heard Bruce Robison's chamber over at Premium? Pretty cool sound, but I can't recall what he was micing it with. I sometimes run a feed into the tracking room at 5am (long decay, great drum room) and mic it with whatever omni isn't being used somewhere else (KM83 or Beyer M101 usually). There's almost no absorption in that room so it sounds like a big chamber. I did the same thing at my old place in Driftwood, which had over 3,000 s.f. of tile on the floors. Amazing reverb.

I haven't been to Bruce's place, but I do recall seeing his chamber being featured in an article.  I've been in that tracking room at 5 AM -- it has absorption in the drum corner, right?  That's about it as I recall.

When did the Moody Blues start recording in stereo?
What ever happened to Tony Clarke?

I've only heard US mixes of thier stuff, which often certainly didn't lack reverb, but some of thier recordings seemed to have potential.
Probably because of the actual material, but somehow I always thought they needed a better mix.
What do you guys know about thier production, et, al?
