I saw these mic tubes today - I wish I'd had one or two for what I do with sound and vision in old fashioned buildings - so much nicer visually than the bigger mics on big booms, and my one remaining C451 original with extension tubes is now suffering really badly withe the threads so weak and worn.
I got asked - as a freebie of course, to do one for an amateur choir - you know the thing, really nice people but the prospect of using technology at home on their own daunting.
Clearly, my explanations were not working in text - so I did a video explaining what they had to do, and what I needed - which does seem to have worked.
do you think the choir is too far? mics was at 3m from choir director. I decided this distance to take a good relationship between direct sound and reverberation, it's right?
what do you think about my recording?
How do you record a group or choir with just 4 headphones available in the vocal room?
I've been home studio recording for a little under ten years. Now, I'd like to record the church choir. This is how I'm going about thus far...(this is where I need good advice) two dynamics and one condenser. Do you think that would be enough? Also FYI I'm most likely going to have a solid laptop and audio interface.
What do you think
I'm recording a choir in a playhouse next month. Its a new venue and concept for me. I'm going to need some last minute help on this, starting now :)
I'm using my trusted SF 24 in the center and hanging DPA 's down on top of them. Hanging mics is new for me.
The LCD are a matched pair of DPA 4011 cardiod's with the optional 2006 Omni caps, I'm thinking omni for this?
BUT! There will also be a small amount of FOH PA contribution. Hopefully that isn't going to be very loud.
> A pretty powerful laptop
>12 channel mixer
>8 wireless mics
>$100-$600 budget (or up to 1k, if the difference is WELL worth it)
my method so far:
The directors love the tip of the tongue, top of the teeth" but ... What do you do with something like this?
