Recording classic vocal (baritone) and piano

I'm asked to film a classic vocal and piano. Just for fun, no audience. In the past I've done some bigbandrecordings but this classic thing is a bit out of my confortzone. Filmwise I'll be ok but on the audioside I'm not shure how to set up things. It's going to be recorded in an old barn with a wooden floor. Some of my mics I can use are 1x Austrian audio OC18, 2x neumann km184, 1x akg C414 xls, 1x akg C214, 4x Oktava MK012, 2x Line audio cm3, 2x Line audio Omni1, and lot of dynamic and pzm mics. I'll record in 32bit float.
Any tips for mic placing?

Recording classical baritone singer


There have been many threads on this across the forum, but most of the ones I found are a bit old, so hear me out!

I'm a baritone singer and perform opera, art songs, and early music. My voice is perhaps medium for an opera singer (large for an early music singer). I'm looking for equipment I can use to record lessons and rehearsals, so that I can see how changes in technique come across to other listeners. Ideally I'd also be able to use these recordings for sending to conductors.

best mic for a bass-baritone narrator with a silky string?

Just wondering what you folks with good ears would suggest.

Back in the 60's I worked a Beyer birdcage ribbon (I don't know the model) that was pretty good with my voice (lousy radio studio). In the mid-80's I worked a U87 in a spectacular room and my voice never sounded so good, Unfortunately, the U87 I bought never sounded close to the U87 in that room (learned an expensive lesson). So I bought a TLM170 and promptly sold it. I've worked quite an array of mics over the years and have a NT1 Rode, RE20, Sennheiser 441 and a half dozen lesser microphones.

Best baritone vocal mic?

Hi, I'm a sort of Dylanesque singer/songwriter that is recording at home & I am looking for a decent vocal mic for under $250. Considering a moded Oktava 319 - a ADK-A51 or a MXL v67i. Or wait to find a lucky deal ebay deal on a Rode. U can hear my vocals recorded 1 live(dynamic mic) and 2 Studio(Neuman or Rode) tracks @ & click on media.

Baritone Guitars

hey ppl :D .. i was wondering what was so special about baritone guitars.. i understood that they have thicker strings, like 56-46-36-26W-17-13,but what means them having a bigger scale ? i dnt get that ..
do baritones have the same string tension like guitars in EADGBe ? even if ,like the ESP Viper Baritone,they are in B-E-A-D-F#-B ???

anyone know other brands that produce Baritones except for ESP(even if they're over the 600$ of an ESP,which still is much)..

thx for the help .. :twisted:

1 mic 4 - Steinway grand & baritone malevoice

Price is not an object! I sing my songs and record a steinway grand piano all the time. I feel that it is time for a magor upgrade in quality. I know preamps are just as important but I think I have that covered or at least enough to experiment with a nice microphone. Any suggestions.
