Recording Men's Choir

and wondering what the best mics would be? Do I record each man? Or just a spaced pair? Or Decca Tree in front of the men? I want them to sound very manly, more of a man's choir than boy's choir vibe. Help!

depends on the size of the choir, the acoustics of the room you're recording in and on the soundfield you're trying to achieve.

it certainly takes a vastly different approch than what the previous poster suggested...

Looks like the previous poster deleted his comment... too bad, it was kinda funny!

My original post is a PERFECT example of why you don't leave your account logged in at a buddies studio...

I got a good laugh out of it though!!

If you think there is a best mic and best array, just enjoy recordings.

The appropriate mics include:

AKG C4XX series
DPA 400X series
Line Audio CM4
Line Audio OM1
Oktava 012 series
Neumann KM1XX series
Schoeps CMC series

and that is just sampling of world class microphones appropriate foe the application in the SDC field. BTW it is good to reply to technical no budget query

As far as arrays I suggest Eargle's The Microphone Handbook
