Bear in mind also that, while the MI/Os pres are better than the Korg\'s I really would prefer not to travel with this gear at this stage and would therefore prefer to avoid using it if I can. Is there some other, more compact and relatively inexpensive (say $500) option worth looking at?
Finally, any micing suggestions (type of mics; placement)? The orchestra has usually been recorded in this church simply with a DAT and two Sennheiser 416s set two feet apart and eight feet high. Results aren\'t all that bad.
The final piece is a piano concerto: would you recommend spots on the piano? (probably...right?)
