I did a studio recording of a lyric soprano. She had a GREAT voice. I spent about an hour trying to get just the right sound for her. Most of the time was finding the right microphone for the job and finding the best spot to put it in. I too noticed some distortion on her voice but when I went into the studio I heard the same thing I was hearing in the control room. The recording came off very well and she was pleased with the results. The other problem I had was that the piano was in one studio and she was in another due to the way this place was constructed. She was a real trouper and made it all seem like there were no problems at all. I wound up using a AT4050 about 3.5 feet away and positioned just below her chin.
