I discovered the one instance where I might want reading glasses and distance glasses in one pair of progressive bifocals. That's recording where I have a machine close by and then have to look in the distance at the subjects.
|SD 702. Remember that you need external power if you're going to be using an external portable FireWire drive.
I used the Oktava 012 mics. Russian made and from The Sound Room. They sound great.
|The Oktava mics are a bit further apart on this X/Y bar than I've been having them. Is that good? Bad? I don't know.
|These look higher up than they really are. They're only up as high as my AKG tripod mic stand will put them.
What I did was set up in the back of the room, but then just before the performance I pushed the mic stand about 12 feet closer to the chorus. This was at Holy Trinity on 82nd Street. The shape of the space is interesting with a huge domed ceiling.
|See? I'm cheating. I'm using the marks that are already on the floor for my mic positions. This will make it easier to replicate (or avoid) in the future.
