Hello, Sorry if this has been asked before. I am the sound tech for a charity choir, and yes you've guessed it, we want to record stuff and not spend any money. We've been muddling along, but now we're recording for CD for sale and I'm keen to get a better sound that what we've had so far from a cheap mono mic. I've already sorted the recording unit, I just need to choose a stereo mic setup. I've only got about £500 to spend at the absolute most. It's been suggested I get one of these: Rode NT4 which is at a good price, but a fixed distance & angle. I prefer the look of these: AKG C451B Matched Pair however it's really at the outer limit of my budget and I need some kind of mic stand too. From what I've read though, it seems an MS microphone would be a better choice, but the only one I've found it about 2.5 grand! The other problem is that the recordings are going to be done in a variety of locations around the UK, some in large halls and others in dead rooms. The choir is SATB, sometimes with a soloist (not always with mic) and sometimes with a mixture of acoustic instruments (piano, guitar, saxophone). Yes I'm asking alot and it will all be a big compromise, but which way should I jump? Thanks.
