Please give some suggestions to this scenario: (This is an on-going weekly effort): I am recording a live jazz orchestra for delayed radio broadcast (and, later, cable TV & web). For now, this is being recorded straight to DAT - mixed on the fly. No o-dubbing, post mix work, etc. The orchestra includes - on about half or so of the songs - anywhere from 1 to 10 (or more) singers whether it be a Solo lead vocal, Duet, Soloist(s) with BgVs or Choir/Ensemble vocals. I also have an on-stage program announcer who does most of the introductions and credits throughout the program. The band leader does alot of talking in between tunes as well. The announcer and the band leader each have their own mic. I also have 7 other mics that are available for use as vocal mics. I have enough compressors for both the announcer and the band leader as well as 6 of the other vocal mics. Some of the singers have a mic assigned to them (use the same one all the time) but there aren't enough to go around for everyone to do this. I am desparately trying to keep EQ & comp settings the same on each mic from week to week or, at least have the settings documented so I can easily get them back the next time that person uses it. I will have to let some of them share a mic at some times. When all the vocalists are singing at the same time, the band leader wants this to have a Brooklyn Tab. sort of sound - big choir sound. Yet, he still wants to be able to hear parts (alto, tenor, etc.) What do you think would be the best way to handle this situation? What micing techniques do/would you use? I'm getting pretty close, but it sure can be a hassle trying to get a good mix on each song - remember, its on the fly. Any tips and suggestions are much appreciated!
