Any suggestions on recording a clarinet choir from people who have experience with this ensemble? This will not be a concert, so I have time to do whatever is necessary to get the best results. It will take place in a rehearsal hall which is fairly dry. I'm just not sure if I should approach it from a simple main pair in ortf or ms, or if I should use spot mics (or a combination).
I am a professional clarinetist who has dabbled at various times with recording. I am now looking to put together a home recording kit for a project involving overdubbing myself. Equpiment on hand currently is a Mackie 1202 mixer (original version) along with a pair of Shure BG 4.0 mics.
