Hi all, This is my first time on the forum and if I receive some helpful comments I'll be sure to join as a member. I recorded myself playing a classical piece in a concert hall, putting the microphone (not mine, but some Sony version of the H4 recorder, portable) in the middle of the hall, about 100 feet from the piano. I thought it would sound a lot better than recording in a small room with the mic close, but when I listened to the recording, it didn't sound so great. It has a distant sound, like its being recorded from far away (which is was) and it loses some of its power and intimacy that it would have with a closer sound and more boastful volume. Also, some of the fine details of the playing get drowned out in loud sections because of the reverb of the hall. I'm wondering what your thoughts are on this, should I not record classical music in a concert hall from the middle of the hall? Would it be better to record in the hall, but have the mic closer to the piano? is there a way in editing (on Cakewalk's SONAR, which is what I have) to make it sound better? Thanks!
