Hi, I'm about to record a soprano sax soloist in my living-room. The guy playing is a semi-pro and we have the follwing equipment: Mics: * AKG Solidtube * Rode NT1000 * Matched pair of ADK Vienna Edition * SM57 Pre: * DBX 376 tube mic pre Interface * Digidesign Digi002 Rack We will use the DBX for the main mic and then via SPDI/F and also put up the Viennas for ambience/room and plug them into the 002. I think we have decent equipment to get a good take. However I'm not so sure about what mics to choose and what mic placement to use for the soprano sax. Should we go for the clean NT1000 or the more colorful Solidtube? Or perhaps the SM57? Yes I know it depends. Yes I know that listening is most important, but it would be great to get a hint from you guys on how to start :wink: . Sincerely P.
