I've been having a bit of fun with this it's true - but there's one thing I really want to do and I'm struggling to find the best approach - it has the look of wasting many hours perhaps unnecessarily when I should be working on productions!

I have Synchron Percussion (and synchron strings on pre-order)

I also have MIR Pro and Synchron room pack.

I am of course aware that Synchron perc and strings are not specifically designed to be used with MIR Pro but what I've been trying to do is to match the sound of the Synchron percussion stereo mixes (which sound fantastic) by A/B-ing with a single mic position and using the multiple IR's to get the same sound, or somewhere close.

The idea is obviously so that when I bring in my other sections of dry(ish) sounds and apply the same kind of mic selection and positioning I should be able ultimately to create a homogenous sound that IS the Synchron sound stage and tweak from there.

However I am having difficulty with this and the stereo mix of the Synchron recordings are always better sounding than anything I've managed with my tweaks so far.

I have not had time to go exhaustively through every permutation but I did rather wonder if there were some presets or tips as to which microphone selections and positions can be used to achieve these sorts of results.

I would like to know this too. Did you ever get an answer?

No I didn't.

I think some answers may lie in "Synchronized" libraries which weren't available when I posted this. What I mean is that comparisons could be made - it wouldn't provide the whole answer but there may be clues. Because I am assuming that those patches will have been faked using IR algorithms from Synchron stage in MIRPro rather than being authentic mic placements.

But I really haven't the time to experiment these days - I just go with the best sounds I can muster - and using things like Izotope Tonal Balance and Insight at various stages try to match whatever space I'm trying to achieve.
