Hi all; This time I'm the one looking for ideas and mic suggestions from anyone and all, regarding mic choices, experience, etc. I have my own ideas, but i'd welcome any one else's thoughts as well. This will be a studio recording, no audience. The space is a trapezoidal room, roughly 20x40, 8' ceiling at one end, rising to 10' at the far end, hardwood floor. The lineup is Fr. horn, clarinet, flute, oboe & bassoon. I have the following mic's available: 1. B&K 4006's (2) 2. AT 4050's (2) 3. AT 4040's (2) 4. Neuman KMi-84's (2) 5. AKG 451's (2) omni's 6. SP C4's (2) 7. Royer SF-24 (1) 8. SM-81s (2) 9. AKG 414's (2) And a few others I think I've left out... I plan to do at least 1 mic per instrument (the french horn is going to be tricky, of course) and at least one stereo pair for all. I may be able to have them move around/spread out a bit to help with the mic'ing, but I'm sure they will have a specific ensemble setting to see/hear each other properly. We'll have about an hour warm up to set levels, etc., and then we'll spend about 2 hrs tracking the music. Mixing will happen later. Any ideas on best mics for these?
