We've talked about this before but try it. Play the stereo WATERLOO SUNSET and see how far you can get the background singing to go. The recording was done in a dub down process, bouncing from one machine to another to add the backgrounds. Somehow they goofed and they ended up out of phase (or it was an effect they intentionally were going for). The background voices are floating and should seem to be way the hell to the sides, around you, almost surrounding you. Can't hear it? Reposition your speakers until you do. Then, enjoy! Later: Folks, you will enhance this effect by towing out, of course. In fact, no toe-in at all will make it just right, HOWEVER, check your center vocals on something in a good stereo mix. Sometimes NO toe-in (having your speakers straight, facing the room, no angle at all) can make your center stuff more muted sounding. Check and see, compromise is sometimes the best. Look at your speakers from your sweet spot. You should just be able to just see the inside walls of your speakers from your X. That is how I have mine, just a bit of toe-in to make sure the center volume is perfect. Capiche? To recap: Move your speakers away from a back wall, make sure you have room on both sides, make a triangle with your speakers and your widdle head. Play the thing and listen. Move your head closer or further back while BG singing is on to figure out exact sweet spot. When the singing sounds way out there, beyond your speakers, that is it. Then, get it right and leave it. Everything will sound better Now that you have it just right, grab your DEEP FOREST "Sweet Lullaby" CD and live it up!
