Hey all- My first post to the forum! :wink: This weekend I will be recording an orchestra with a choir at a church. I will be using a Sound Devices 8 track and I have a good selection of microphones to use (through the university), and up to this point, I was thinking: 2 U87s for the main stereo pair ( ORTF or blumlein) 2 omnis for the outriggers (not sure what mics yet) the choir will be behind the orchestra, so I was thinking 2 spaced shoeps cardiods (to help isolate from intruments)? and then there will be solo vocalists in between the orchestra and choir...was thinking a pair of 87's in ORTF would work? Any thoughts on this? Thanks for the help/input!
