Hi, guys. I've been away for awhile. My best time for talking to you guys is during my lunch breaks and we have been working right through them for awhile. So I am glad to be back. Anyway, you may remember that I have a Roland VS-2480. I am recording a small church choir singing to a sequenced song from a Roland module. Do you have any good pointers for getting a good quality sound in terms of mic placement, how many and what kind of mics, EQing, etc.? Any advice would be great. And again, it's good to be back. You guys have made some really radical changes. I actually did a profile too! Talk to you guys soon! Mike Morales

May 15, 2002 12:01 pm Ya, I remember you, ya need to refresh the memory a bit though, I how big of a choir? I would get some good condensor mics to hang a few feet over head at different points over the choir, how many and how far kinda depend on the size of the choir and how they are standing...
Yes, we did do some radical changes, I hated to loose those last forums, but it was a necessary upgrade, and so far everybody seems pretty happy, most everyone came back, so thats a good sign, all my work building this wasn't wasted then :-)
May 15, 2002 12:12 pm The choir is only about 10 or 12 members.
May 15, 2002 12:24 pm heck no prob, maybe you should consider rent a small mic for each of them, or, just getting three or four nice condensors and place infront and above the choir so they are about the same distance from everyone...
Then pan the tracks like they are placed and your will have some stereo imaging too, which would be cool.
May 15, 2002 01:03 pm Ok, what about keeping the bleedthru to a minimum? They (the choir) will have to have a monitor to hear the music. Is there a trick for that problem?
May 15, 2002 02:58 pm well are we talking the tenors bleeding into the bass' mic or the monitors bleeding into the mics as a whole...if that is the issue, my best suggestion is a moajor headphone splitter and a dozen headphones.
May 15, 2002 03:09 pm Yeah, I meant the monitors bleeding into the mics. They are on a very tight budget, so I'm sure that they can't fork up the cash for all of those headphones, let alone a headphone amp!
May 15, 2002 03:25 pm well without headphones it'll be pretty toucgh to stop bleeding...if the sound needs to get to there ears, it will get to the mics too...hmmmmmm
ya might be able to rent...just a thought, and many people may have a set of headphones at home...
