The way I currently have my OB speakers set up I have a good center image and when playing test tracks I have very good left to right imaging i.e. when someone is walking in from stage left, across the front of the stage and off to stage right, then rolls a glass bottle across a hard floor from right to left, then retraces his steps from right to left, the sound realistically follows the footsteps and bottle.
When playing test tracks for depth you can easily hear a clicker moving further away. You can also tell a drum set is closer or further away based on distance from the microphone, though not as evident at closer distances than with a clicker.
However, on a track for height, the sound of a cowbell stays pretty much vertically centered even though it starts off on the floor, 4 ft below the mic, then is slowly raised until it is 4ft above the mic.
The question is what do I need to adjust, and how, so the sound of the bell tracks it’s movement?
