Micing Live Performance of Sax Quartet


I have a sax quartet and need to record our performances for some QC. The music we play are jazz standards and the arrangements have a lot going on in the inner voices. We need to be able to listen to our performances to check out how we balance on set vs. in rehearsal. Our set up is usually in a V. I am unable to place a mic stand in front of the group past the front music stands.

Recording Sax - scared!

Alright, so here's my small dilemma...

I am going to be recording some sax coming up here pretty soon for a rock song. The player is incredible, in fact he has a doctorate's in music (he is the band director at the local college as well), so I really don't want to screw this one up!

need HELP - recording of sax and trumpet

need HELP !

during next weekend I have to record a sax and a trumpet (swing music) the first time in my life.
Unfortunately I don't have a seperate recording room and it will be quite difficult to get real control over the tone during tracking. Also intensive testing and trials might be difficult. Therefore I need to do it the first time right.
