Hi all, In a little while, I will be involved in a project requiring that I record an orchestra. Now, the main problem with this is that intuitively I have an idea of how I would like to record the instruments, but I really have no idea of whether or not it is right. The orchestra consists of roughly 28 people, and the micing equipment we have for this is 2 stereo condenser mics, 3 standard condenser mics, and 3 or 4 Shure SM57/58s. What I was thinking would be best for this (and please correct me if necessary ) would be to have the stereo condensers at a decent distance from the orchestra, one on each side to get a good stereo image, and then use the other condenser mics as spot mics in the sections (string, brass, woodwind). The dynamic mics were going to be used for percussion since it tends to be very loud. Does this make sense? Please let me know. Thanks in advance.
