    Well, nobody bit in "Live Sound" so I guess I will try a repost here.

    Hi all! I need to record a school orchestra. My option is an Masterlink, that's it as far as a recording device. I also have two C1000, two SM57, and two SM58 mics if needed. Can this be done with any chance of success? The auditorium is approximatley 70' wide x 40' high. The lower level is somewhere around 50' front to back, the balcony, set back is maybe 50' in depth by itself. There is no front end that I am aware of. By the way, this isn't life or death, I'm pretty much experimenting, and no money will be changing hands.

    Thanks!

    Hello Vin;

    Please stop over to the "Acoustic Music" forum and repost your message, you may get a little more help over there. (It's a bit high-end, gear wise, but they'll be nice to you and help out, I'm sure...)

    Hey Vin,

    Welcome to RO!

    you're still not quite in the right spot try the "acoustic music" forum

    http://www.recording.org/forum-43.html

    The masterlink will be fine for your needs. (I'm assuming the goal is to create something that is somewhat representative of the live performance and not for commercial resale.)
    I wouldn't bother trying the 57s or 58's as "room" mics and haven't used the C1000's personally so I won't say one way or another.

    If the hall is decent sounding a good set of omni mics can give you excellent results - but check the acoustic music forum for additional resources and stereo micing techniques.

    Good Luck
