Sound sources (acoustic instruments, vocalists) must be located around the microphone keeping an approximately equal angle from each other and equal distance from the microphone.
Recording with a drum set
Instruments like drums can be located in longer distance from the microphone. To avoid signal distortion from microphone, it is recommended to put ZYLIA mic in a longer distance from a full drum set, 2-4 m. Appropriate distance can be tested by user in test recordings. Sometimes it is good to check two-three different placements when recording with loud instruments and choose the best one. Signal distortion from microphone can be monitored on v-meter in ZYLIA Studio.
One sound source = one loudspeaker
If you want to obtain at the end separated files you are recommended to use one loudspeaker per one sound source/instrument/vocal. Do not use one loudspeaker per multiple sound sources.
