Polarity, Phase & Delay – what’s the difference? This and many other questions will be answered in this fantastic seminar on Phase.

Packed full of insights and practical tips, the lads cover: basic theory, stereo micing techniques for studio and live, how gain affects phase, micing live orchestras, recording ensembles, live and recorded drums, what happens in reality with complex waves, using delay on digital desks, practical applications that exploit the phase phenomenon, thermal inversion, comb filtering, why it’s better to restrict the frequency band in delay speakers and much, much more.

Filmed at PLASA London 2014.
