Search function keeps returning blank pages :S How would you go about capturing the sound of a congregation singing, with a cardoid dynamic mic? (Stereo is going to be more hassle than it's worth for the moment) This isn't a one off thing, it's going to be done weekly, starting in the new year perhaps. The limitation is that the mic can't be visually intrusive. I'm not hoping for an exact placement here, but some hints. The pew area is about 8m wide by 14m long. ~7m roof. I'm not bothered about quality of the sound here, so long as it resembles people singing in a stone room. To capture the fullest sound from the congregation, I assume I want to be above their heads, pointing down at the busiest area? I'll assume I want to be far away from and not be pointing at the PA cabs which have guitar/piano during hymns. What if I tried from behind, with a mic above the back row, pointing back up the hall? Would you expect that to be unusably full of PA feed? Experimenting is a little difficult in this case.
