Well this was a sudden decision. A guy who I am recording has a new song he wants to do on my piano. I've never seriously recorded the Steinway in the living room, so this will be an adventure. (Running cables from the basement studio should be fun.) It's a ballad. Slow chords. Not much activity. Piano is a 1911 Steinway grand. Holds tune pretty well, but is due for a tuning. (Wish Jose had told me about this two weeks ago.) I'll move it toward the center of the room and try to find a sweet spot. (It's on those "sliding" casters, but rarely gets moved.) Put some gobos in the corners. The room is about 14 X 20 with the ceiling 12 ft in the center sloping to 8 ft on the sides. Basic plan right now is to go with Beyer 160/130 as a MS pair 3-6 ft from the body of the piano. That's probably enough, but I might as well throw some other mics up an see what sticks. Here's my list of condensers. AKG C414 (2) Shure SM 81 (2) Rode NT 55 (2) Rode K2 (1) Suggestions on selection and placement are welcome.
