    If this is classical music, do NOT use any compression during recording! In fact, don't do anything at all - no EQ, no nothing. Defer that for later. You never want to compress classical performers at all unless they are not very good and truly need it to smooth out their performance.

    hey thomas,

    the tascam is a good machine for do this recordings. i do often with this machine, but . . . . i also use no compression with classical scores. be careful. go directly via mixer in the da-78 with good mic-pre-amps and good mic's( large diaphragman) . for grandpianos i use 2 stereo mics. look at this site: http://www.audiotechnica.com/using/mphones/worship/miking.html

    perhaps you have a good sounded room, use two room mic's ( omnidirectional )

    godd luck
