Okay, so this isn't exactly a challenging gig coming up by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm throwing this out there anyway. Here's the deal - I'm doing a session next weekend with a chamber chorus (approx 25-30 members) which will be either: A capella voice and piano (7' church grand piano - I don't know the brand or the quality, but I have been assured it is good and well-tuned) voice, piano and clarinet voice, piano and cello Occassionally there will be vocal soloists during occassional pieces. The venue is a good (as in good acoustics and no excessive background noise and out in the country...) church with high ceilings and plenty of wood. So, given the gear that I will have available, I'm curious to see what others might do. Gear Available: (quantity available listed in parenthesis beside the item. If no quantity listed, assume quantity 1) Mics - Schoeps CMC64 (2) Schoeps CMC62s (2) Gefell M296 (2) Royer SF12 AKG C390B Omni (2) Soundelux U195 Beyer M130 Beyer M160 Rode NT5 (2) Rode K2 AT 4040 Audix M1290 omni (2) Audix i5 (3) AT 3528 (2) Oktava MC012 cardioid Oktava MKL 2500 Tube/Cardioid Neumann TLM 103 Shure Beta 52 Sennheiser E604 Microphone Preamplifiers: DAV Broadhurst Gardens #2 (4 channels) Summit 2BA-221 (2) Langevin DVC Aphex 107 Mackie 1202 MS Mackie Onyx 800R Grace 101 (possibly 2) Conversion: Lynx Aurora 8 (8 channels) Mackie 800R (8 channels - can come in via line-level) The setup will be relatively straight forward - standard standing positions for all of the singers and the conductor and piano center and to the left of the conductor. Instrumentalists - I can position them wherever I'd like as this is a session and not a concert. One note - I will NOT be using the SF12 on the chorus as a main mic, so factor that into the equation. I already pretty much have my mind made up on how I'm going to do it, but this is one of those things where, if someone comes up with an idea that blows my mind, I'll do it. But, in any case, it should be interesting to see how others would do this recording. J.
