The most preferable reverberation level for the recording of orchestra sounds by recording engineers was studied by a psycho acoustical experiment. The most preferable electric reverberation level to the orchestral sounds recorded in an anechoic chamber was measured by a method of adjustment. A physical index of C (Clarity Index) was used to measure the energy ratio between the direct sound and the indirect sound of the adjusted sounds. The obtained values of C from the most preferable reverberation were different among the music pieces. The reverberation time and the reproduction method (monophonic, stereophonic or quadraphonic) did not affect the C value.
