Here's the deal. I've found other posts about this, but I can't really get a clear answer. I have a practice studio. Medium sized. I guess 300-400 square feet. We share with other bands, but we're holding the lease, so we can take some "liberties". What I'd like to do is set up a few mics around the room to get a decent recording of sessions. Between what I get with a handheld digital and what you'd get in an actual recording studio. By that I mean good enough that you could maybe use it for a demo, but not much more than that. On one wall we have the drums. Bass and guitars are sort of strewn around that. Singer is a little farther off. The layout could be changed if needed. There's also the extreme possibility of isolating the drums in a different corner and building walls, but that's probably more than I'd be interested in (unless we could swing pretty decent quality records, but I don't think we're there yet). One possibility would be to hang something over the drums to get a halfway decent recording of them, mic the guitars. Bass and singer right into the PA (and out to whatever is recording). Another option, if it would produce even a passable recording, would be just a few mics placed around the room. Any thoughts? A good link to previous discussions? I can put a little money into this, if its worth it. Just want some feed back. I have a few computers available. I'd probably use a laptop, just to save space. Thanks in advance.
