what are you guys using for classical music recording?
This weekend both nites I had a gig that I used km 184s into symetrix into a Mac/Paris setup, very solid! first nite I used x/y coincident 2nd nite used near coincident, which I liked better, i think..
What are you using for mic,pres recorders?
Have you tried a decca tree? Can you buy this sort of a bar for a mic stand? I also am interested in mid side micing for this if any of you have tried this, I would love to hear about it,Thanks!
I've used the Wes Dooley Decca tree with 3 M249's in omni. It provides a pretty good blend but for the type of soundtrack recording I was doing I had to pull in a lot of spot mics in the mix (KM84's, U87's, etc... over the different sections). The setup is VERY tweaky. It takes a bit of luck and patience to position it just right as it has a tendency to swing and sway quite a bit.
We recorded each section separately (strings, then windwoods...brass...percussion) to get the effect of more players. The tree really helps to blend all of those sessions together...but it's still pretty tough to recreate the whole room smear...
Have a session coming up were we'll use the tree with 3 new M150's. Should get a bit more air out of the room...I hope!
