I'm getting married in a couple of weeks! We're having amateurs do AV recording. I've got a PreSonus Firebox (shortly after the whole scandal where people found out it wasn't actually 96ksps, as advertised, but 48ksps and digitally up-sampled internally). It has six inputs, of which two are microphone inputs, and two are line inputs, and two are probably useless (S/PDIF and MIDI). I also have a swarm of USB sound cards. I'm wondering what microphones I should buy to use with it. The wedding will be outdoors, so we may have problems with wind noise. The key part will be the officiant giving a speech, as well as the bride and groom exchanging vows. We'd like to have this well recorded. There will also be a part where one of the bridesmaids plays a violin, and a song is song (likely, with audience participation), which is less important to capture. I don't care much about audio quality in the audiophile sense (good frequency response, low distortion, etc.), but I do care about having the voice be clear and audible -- adequately low noise and adequately My budget is fairly flexible, but I was hoping to spend on the order of $100-$200. If I don't need to spend that much, it's a bonus -- if a $50 shotgun mike would do the job, I'd be thrilled. If I need to spend a bit more, that's okay too, especially if the equipment is reusable for other purposes (I would plan to reuse the microphones with my video camera for other family events, but I'm not going to do any serious AV like music recordings). Any suggestions or recommendations? One person told me to go with a shotgun mike (without specifying which one), while another suggested wireless lavalier microphones, but then I'd need many. Cheapest solution I'm finding is ATR6550 at $50. I might need to rig a stand for it too.
