The PD (Product Documentation & USER GUIDE) for the REMIC P6000 grand piano microphone, will be available for download soon.
Meanwhile you can read a little on this site, which will be constantly updated, but if you should have any questions regarding this product, don’t hesitate to contact us.
The REMIC P6000 is designed to capture the very first movements of air molecules, set in motion by the soundboard of the instrument. This way you will gain the most accurate transient response along with an astonishing representation of a rich tonal balance between fundamentals and overtones.
The REMIC P6000 consists of two matched pair, high definition condenser cartridges, carefully arranged inside two acoustic lenses, ensuring no phase issues occurs within the audible range.
The 444 gram of resonance free brass composite material housing, ensures that no LF pitch distortion occurs.
The REMIC P6000 has been designed to be “Acoustically invisible” to the acoustic characteristics of the instrument and does not change the overall timbre.
The REMIC P6000 is placed on top of the soundboard beneath the strings, pointing towards the the hammers (aming E4/F4) and can be moved around on the soundboard to achieve the desired tone (timbre).
Since no two instrument are exactly alike, it means that you may have to find the right locating for placing the mic, in order to achieve the desired timbre depending upon instrument and type of music genre.
Examples of placements
(recommendations from artists and sound engineers)
For an easy setup, it’s recommended that the REMIC P6000 is placed directly on the soundboard within the colored zone illustrated in the figure below.
Point the “Front centre marking”, (the small dot), on the REMIC P6000towards the hammers, representing E4/F4.
Placing the REMIC P6000 within the “red” zone, means that you will get more “bass” (good for some grand pianos with less low-end) and less attack.
Placing the REMIC P6000 within the “blue” zone , near the hammers, will give a “harder” and more distinctive attack.
In any case, this guidance are only recommendations, since no two grand pianos are alike. Also the individual playing technique of artists and the music genre has an influence on the outcome.
Please contact us if you come with any further experiences on where to place the REMIC P6000 on a grand piano. If the experiences are well documented we will post the recommendations on this site in order for others to benefit from your experiences.
