Hello! I'm new to the forum and to recording in general and I have couple of questions that have been nagging at me for a while. Early next year we are going to be putting on a musical and I would like to record the songs from the soundtrack to sell to the audience. We already have the licesnsening figured out and have permission to do so. As I try to plan ahead I would like to work out the chinks beforehand. So heres what we've got. The actors will be on stage with wirless headsets (audio technicas I believe) The band will be backstage (ranging from guitars to brass instrumetns). I would like to know the best way to mic the band for recording and what type of mics to use. They will be confined to a small space in a small studio theatre (behind the stage). If I could use one decent mic to capture all the sound, that would be excelent, but I know things do have to be evened out. Mixing for the sound in the theatre is not a problem, its the recording that we need to work out. I would also like to capture the audience with out it creating feedback in the speakers. I also have a small Zoom H2N recorder that has great sound quailty and can incorporate that in as well. Other random info: the DAW we have is Pro Tools First. We have an X32 Compact. I did a recording for our last musical (mostly as a test for me) using the USB feature on the X32, and it came out OK. We didn't mic the instuments very much as there wasn't a need to in the small theatre. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreicated. Thanks!
