Condensor or dynamic? Near or far? Both?
I was asked by my local church to record their choir in the church for them to put on a CD and sell as a fund-raising item for an addition they\'d like to do.
With the acoustics of a big church like this, how would you guys go about mic\'ing the whole ordeal?
They will be accompanied by a piano only, in the same room next to them. The walls are wood, not brick or stone, there is carpet on the ground, but still a pretty wicked reverb. Should I use this to my advantage and set the mics further, or capture them close and add reverb with a plug-in. Or should I mic both? Condensors or dynamics?
I have two matched large diaphram condensors, so stereo mic\'ing would be nice with those, but I\'m afraid of pickiing up too much room noise...
Thanks in advance,
