Die Klassische Gitarre und ihre Mikrofonierung (German by Emanuel Werbik PDF

By Emanuel Werbik

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Tontechnik, observe: 1,1, SAE Institute Leipzig (SAE Institute), 34 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Gitarre gilt heute als eines der verbreitetsten Instrumente und findet in nahezu allen Stilrichtungen Verwendung. Gerade durch diese Vielfältigkeit gelingt es der Gitarre nahe zu jeden Typus Spieler zu bedienen und mit den verschiedenen Unterarten von akustischen und elektronischen Gitarrenmodellen auch klanglich ein so breites Feld abzudecken, dass kaum ein Wunsch offen bleibt. Durch den revolutionären technischen Fortschritt und die Entwicklung von Massenkommunikationsmedien wie Radio, Fernsehen und web wurde die Gitarre immer populärer, wurde sogar zum software einer Jugendbewegung. Zudem battle (und ist) die Gitarre mit einem Preis am unteren Ende der Skala von knapp € a hundred für quick jeden erschwinglich. Sie kann überall hin mitgenommen werden, spielerische Erfolge, wenn auch auf niedrigem Niveau, stellen sich rasch ein. Musiker haben die Möglichkeit Konzerte überall auf der Welt zu veranstalten und erreichen schnell eine so große Anzahl von Zuhörern, wie es früher niemals der Fall gewesen wäre. All diese Gründe trugen dazu bei, dass die Gitarre Einzug in viele Haushalte fand, doch durch diese Vielzahl von Eindrücken ist es unvermeidlich, dass sich heutzutage jeder einzelne Mensch klanglich etwas anderes vorstellt wenn er an eine Gitarre oder an Gitarrenmusik denkt. Und nur wenige werden noch das traditionelle Bild der Gitarre im Kopf haben, dass klassische software, welches durch viele spanische Einflüsse geprägt ist. Und die Flut der Begeisterung die mit Ándres Segovia einkehrte scheint schon längst wieder vergangen zu sein.

Da auch die Mehrzahl der tontechnischen Produktionen ein anderes Gitarrenklischee bedient und guy im tontechnischen Alltag in Deutschland immer weniger mit klassischen Gitarristen zu tun hat, möchte ich mich mit dieser vernachlässigten Sparte befassen, um vielleicht bessere Ergebnisse bei Tonaufnahmen einer Konzertgitarre zu erzielen. Diese Diplomarbeit beschäftigt sich additionally mit der Klassischen Gitarre und dem klassischen Gitarristen und versucht die Feinheiten des tools und seines Spiels näher zu beschreiben, um dem Tontechniker Kenntnisse zu vermitteln, welche ihm dabei helfen sollen, sich in den Virtuosen hineinzuversetzen, besser mit eventuellen Problemen umgehen zu können, das Spiel des Gitarristen zu durchschauen um das tool als solches in all seiner Klangschönheit aufnehmen zu können. Des Weiteren sollen die qualitativen Unterschiede der Gitarren deutlich gemacht werden.
