How to recreate?

Hi guys,

How can I recreate an outdoor live performance sound in a studio.
I think I could recreate the ambience, cuz i got stocks of crowds from Hollywood sound fx, maybe stack those into layers and add reverbs, short delays.
but I need the main vocal sound like he's out there.

Should I use a live performance mic?Does that help?
And what kind of reverb or fx chain can i assign to it?

Thunx.

flame.. consider reamping the lead vocals and recording with stereo room mics. play with the distance from speakers / mic to get desired effect.. i've done this reamping the vox through a 4x12 celestion cab, worked great. keep the original vocal and blend the reamp to taste.

yeeaa!!

Oh Gosh, I didnt think of that!!!
That would recreate natural ambience.

I'll try that dude!

Okay let's say that wouldnt work out,
Can I do it in postproduction?
I might record it dry also, for backup.

Keep your dry track and blend them to taste. maybe filter out most of the dry track except the body & presence so the vocals come out nice and clean, yet with that live sound from the reamp.

maybe use high-pass to filter out everything under 150, then cut out the middle from 450 - 4k (on the dry track)

just some ideas.

& N/P your welcome

this will be cool when it's released...

apart from the ambient mic approach try some live room/club/stadium impulse responses,
delays, and mild distortion.
