I need some tips for recording an Large ensemble( something about 60-70 musicians) in an large auditorium (300 people capacity).
It's a charity job for a project of my church, so the equipment is, unfortunately, low budget.
I actually have a Roland R26 recorder, a Audio Technica AT2020 and two 5 meters height tripods.
If it's really needed, i have a $200 budget that can be used to improve the equipment.
It isn't needed to record the auditorium's ambiance(it is an lecture auditorium, so the ambience isn't good) , and i'll use some Reverb plugins in the mixing.
We (me and the ensemble) already made some recordings, I used the roland recorder positioned at 5 meters away from the center-front of the ensemble(45 degrees down, in relation to the tripod), and the at2020 you can see at the picture( the idea was to try to reinforce the winds group, srry for the noob try xD).
Although, i will send a sample of this attempt...
Obs: i used Altiverb 7 (reverb), with the Berlin Philharmonic hall, using the 8m(on at2020 track), 12m(X/y recorder mics track) and 20m(Omni recorder mics track) mics simulations.
