Ok, I´ve been asked by a friend of mine to record an album with her - nine songs with her, a piano, and perhaps an upright bass or saxophone occasionally. I have recorded several bands and I am pretty well versed in stereo/2 track recording, but have never recorded a pianist who is singing at the same time. The music is mostly soft jazzy parts. I know that overdubbing would give me better separation, but since budget is limited I think we´ll try to record all tracks in one or two days, so live recording is probaly the only way to go. Some overdubs maybe, like sax solo. Any suggestions on mic placements? (Vocal, grand, sax, Oh yeah, in my school we got quite a mic/gear closet to chose from: 1 Neumann U47 FET 1 M149 4 U87 (2 matched pair) 2 U89 2 AT 4060 4 414B ULS (1 matched pair) 2 414 TL2 (1 matched pair) 2 Royer 121 (1 matched pair) 2 Neumann TLM50 (1 matched pair) x KM84, 83 140, 184 2 DPA 4011 (1 matched pair) love them! 2 DPA 4006 (1 matched pair) 3 DPA 40?? The ones with 130V Phantom. 2 New schoeps SD mics, dont know yet which model. + assorted dynamics, but I think I will use some of the above instead Millenna 8ch DA88´s, DATs During mix there are a Lexicon 480L, 1176´s amongst others. Yeah, I´m spoiled... We´ll probably record with a Steinway D concert grand or a Yamaha S6 grand in a okay sounding auditorium, otherwise in a treated studio. Flame me with suggestions!
