I don't actually. The best rule to go by is the closer the mic to the monitors, the tighter the ambience sounds. The good news is that this is a definate if it sounds good it is good scenario. I used to use it years ago with drum machines (think roland/boss DR5) to simulate a kit in a real room vs the crappy reverb that came with the unit. I didn't want it to sound like every other person with that same unit and adding my own "room" to it took much of the generics out of the sound. The same is true for ITB and OTB modellers, everybody has one but they don't have your room/space!

If it requires a null test to find it, it is by definition minuscule.
