View Full Version : Recording of a stand up comedian

2008-11-29, 12:15 PM
I recorded a stand up comedian last night and would like some help/advice.There are parts where it is loud but most of it is quite quiet.I had my levels set to full and was on the second row,about 10 feet from the stage.I used a sony ecm-719 mic,and had it set to voice mode,and my levels set to max,so as to give it a good chance of picking things up good enough.At the moment i have a quite recording with the intro music very well recorded.I dont want to add so much boost to it that it adds a ton of hiss.I have rcorded at the same venue,using the same mic,in the same mode and it came out pretty well and very listenable.This recording is mainly just for my own listening,but even so it would be nice if it could be listened to without struggling too much.

Did you record this show to tape? Or digital?

learn how to use a compressor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_level_compression).

or for a quicker solution try winamp with Enhancer 017 plugin (http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details/81361).
