Hi there, I'm after some advice and opinions regarding specifying a complete system which will be used to record and analyse some vocal work. I work at a university and we are carrying out a series of experiments. The experiment is being set up to discover the effectiveness of some new breathing exercises being developed at the uni. They claim to improve the strength of a vocalists lungs etc, enabling them to hold longer notes etc. A group of vocalists will be used with recordings taken before and after the training. The measurements that will be taken are: Duration of the note, Rate of change of dynamic (amplitude/time), Consistency of pitch (frequency), Softest note measurement, Loudest note. So I need a decent mic, a means of recording and then analyzing the data. Budget isn't really an issue, though I've been told to try to keep it under £70,000... I'm thinking along the lines of a Mac based Protools system, but I don't have enough experience in this side of pro audio to make a educated decision, hence my posting here. What kind of mic would I be best off using? So, if you have any ideas let me know please.
