Re: Need someone to record Pennsic concert
- I read the post and the only thing that really registered was "HORN
So am I
Mistress Arianna and I chatted and I'm going to record the concert the
same way as I did the last few. High End Stereo mike into a 16 bit
mini-disc (battery operated)
Bringing high end audio equipment would be a chance. You can
never tell the weather at war and even though there is a storage
trailer there, I would be hesitant to store my Hard Disk and expensive
mikes in there.
I know it's not as high end as I could get at home, but the last
few recordings have been, OK, pretty good quality for what it is.
I am careful with the Mike placement and I use the support post to
create it's own sound baffle from the audience.
It will also mean that all the recordings from the last few years will
be about the same quality.
I come home and then transfer the recording to digital medium and mix
it on pro tools in my brother's studio and master it and then burn it
to CD. Takes me a while to do it since I'm lazy and never have time
for ANYTHING, but I eventually get it done.
So, there it is. Besides, I then have an archival recording of the KWC
for the purpose of..... history.
checked in for the first time in a week, so sorry for being

- I have a couple of mics (and 3 stands), if you want to get more input points. Just say the word and I'll pack them.Niamh

KWC. I have 5 years of recordings.. .. and all but 1 is mixed and
mastered. I did all the recordings on a mini-disc with one stereo
microphone. It's not the most perfect, but it does a nice clean
overhead recording. Then I get home, dump it into ProTools and fix it
up a bit.
I will do the same for this year's concert if you'd like. I can
then turn over the mini-disc to you Arianna, or take it home, and fix
it up a bit.
My plan was to put out a KWC CD after this year for members.
If you want me to do the mini-disc recording.. I will be happy too.
I'll be there any way.
I can also just take it home and make a direct copy of the cd for
anyone who wants one.

Thank you, that is very kind of you to offer. I'm going to go with
the KISS method! I'd feel better if you left home the mikes and
stands. Pennsic generates enough stuff in a vehicle, no need to bring
along mundane gear as well.
- Time for my weekly checkin.
Well, I am of course bringing the horn to Pennsic, gotta keep the
chops up as there are auditions after, and I always love playing
duets, and will have all my ensemble music with me - horn duets,
quartets, octets, brass quartets and quintets, as well as woodwind
quintets, so if you or anyone else out there is interested in some jam
sessions, bring a stand and a horn! (pardon the run on sentence.)
see you there!
