Behind the Spacebar SB-66 lies the same devotion to pristine audio that drives Grace Design's incredibly transparent preamplifiers and signal processors. The Spacebar SB-66 is not your typical stereo miking tool! Rather, it is an ultra-precise, professional instrument for setting microphone position patterns and angles. Engraved markings give you the ability to measure the capsule spacing, angle of incidence, and rotation around the x-axis of two microphones so that you can re-create the same conditions over and over again. Microphone placement has never been as precise or easy to reproduce as it is with the Spacebar SB-66.Grace Design Spacebar SB-66 Professional Microphone Placement Tool at a Glance:
- Precision microphone positioning made simple, reliable, and repeatable
- Get the best stereo from your microphone setup
Precision microphone positioning made simple, reliable, and repeatable
With measurements running as fine a five degrees of rotation and five millimeters of horizontal adjustment, you can achieve absolutely precise microphone placements. The white-on-black measurement readouts provide markings that are easy to read for your records so that recreating exact setups is not only possible, but headache-free.
Get the best stereo from your microphone setup
Based on the characteristics of your microphones and formulas grounded in audiology and acoustic physics, there are several methods to achieving advanced stereo microphone placement that require the kind of precision measurements that the Spacebar SB-66 can deliver. Beyond standard stereo configurations like XY, ORTF, NOS, and AB 50cm, the Spacebar SB-66 allows you achieve exact settings throughout the entire continuum of angle and spacing, so you can tailor the pickup field of your microphones to suit virtually any recording environment.
