    I'm interested in playing around with recording my wife's audition CD's. we have already hired a professional to record her current CD and will be hiring another pro to record a full cd later in the summer.

    I would like to get a few pieces of gear (minimal) and start to play around with recording.

    She will be singing a range of arias...with high highs and low lows...varying dynamics from the softest pianissimos to the loudest fortes.
    It will be her with a piano accompaniment.

    What gear do I need? One person told me that a TASCAM handheld recorder with a Rode NT$ would do the trick...but I'm hearing a lot about these ribbon mics for sopranos. What do I need and what can I get by with?

    Thanks in advance for any help offered.
