Baffled Stereo

When one is confused about how to mix in stereo and just mixes to mono instead. Actually it is really a generic term for a lot of different stereo miking techniques using an acoustic baffle to enhance the channel separation of the stereo signals. When placed between the two microphones in a spaced stereo set-up like ORTF stereo, DIN stereo or NOS stereo, the shadow effect from the baffle will have a positive influence on the attenuation of off-axis sound sources and thereby enhancing the channel separation. Baffles should be made from an acoustic absorbent and non-reflective material to prevent any reflections on the surface of the baffle to cause coloring of the audio.
