| | choir & small band, live amplification & recording
i was asked to record and amplify a choir and small band for a live-show. as i don't have hands-on experience (i do mostly mixing) i'm asking you guys for help!
- choir (14 men, amateurs)
- e-piano (direct)
- e-bass ampsound on stage plus direct to FOH
- drums miced
the venue has 200 seats, stage is down on the floor, audience 12 rows, rahter steep
stage is 14x30feet
FOH = db (don't know the model) l&r and center hanged, front edge of stage
style of music is pop, but the band (drummer) plays softly.
monitors as few and quiet as possible
the choir will act and dance too! (move around)
the band will be on the left of the stage leaving 3/4 of the surface to the choir
obviously the hard part will be to capture the choir without causing feedbacks.
my initial idea was to do just minimal amplification of the band and try to capture the choir with 2 shotguns k6/m66 or m67 (or something else?) angled away from the band.
i do have a pair of km184 but i don't trust those feedback-wise. also i don't think they can 'reach' to the back of the stage.
can this work and sound acceptable, both in the house and on the recording?
i would need to rent the shotguns, for the drums i'm well equipped i believe:
any help is greatly appreciated!
