I received a call to record a renown jazz artist but he wants the recording done at his home. I did my first recording of a jazz group several month back but the instrumentation was a little different and I could go back and add strings and solos later. This project is once and done in a day. What I need help with is mic and pre amp choice. What would be your choice using an 8 channel recorder on a jazz quartet-Bop/Latin. Instrumentation is piano, Bass Drums and the Sax player doubles on vocals? This setup is in one room probably no isolation. What mic patten to use, when to use the ribbon, hyper or omni etc, and lastly how to direct the band to set up, to avoid leakage. Thanks in advance for all your help!!!
