    I'm in a new band and we'd like to record a simple demo. Our orchestration is violin, viola, steel pan, bass, and keys (I'm playing only keyboards now; no acoustic keyboard instruments yet).

    So: what do you think we need to make this demo work? We don't practice on system, so we're good at balancing by ourselves (that is to say: I'm hoping (for our first thing) we can get away with not giving each instrument its own track).

    This is what I'm hoping:

    A nice condenser mic (what kind?) for the instruments and a tight dynamic cardioid mic ( probably SM58 ) for the vocals. Run it all through an Mbox into ProTools.

    What do you think?

    Riiicola; I think you should repost this over on the acoustic music forum. LOTs of folks there who specialize in this stuff who can give you some real specfics and tips.
