So, I've got a dude coming over to play some sitar for a recording. I will be using an AKG Perception 420. Bare in mind that P420 mic has three modes: omnidirectional, cardioid, and figure 8. I will be recording at my small house. The problem is that I have wooden floors and not much stuff in the hoiuse to soak up reverb. Any tips on how to record here? I have the option of recording in the living room or one of the two bedrooms. The living room is a medium sized room with only a sofa to soak up reverb. This room would be my favourtite room just because there is space to move but I am anticipating reverb. If I move to the bedroom, the sitar player could sit on the bed. However, this introduces problems because there is no hard surface to rest the shock mounted mic on. I know very little about recording. What are some ideas here? Sit on couch, attach mic to stand? Sit on bed edge with stand next to bed? Sit on wooden floor? Go out and buy some rubber padding for the floor? Will I need to pad the walls? Is a smaller, less reverby room always better?
