I've discussed this more than once but wasn't sure what mics I'd settle on and know how the room would sound with people in it until yesterday. Recording 14 choirs over 2 days. Largest choir will be 75 people. Small choir test Last week using two R-122's in Blumlein about 20 ft back from the choir, 2 ft above top head level for a test run sounded pretty nice. The 40 ft ceilings in a barn style church make it a bit reverb heavy so what are some ways to tame this a bit? Updates: A Royer SF-24 arrived for me yesterday ( so nice) and am very thrilled to use this instead of my R122's. What are some ways to improve things with limited room for one tall (with small booms if needed) stand behind the choir director? I'm thinking if I could get a little closer with the SF24 (closer = less reverb yes but may loose the far left/right a bit?) and then put two DPA 4011A in ORTF on the stereo bar to catch the wings. Am I on track here? Any suggestions?
