recording accoustic

i have an uncoming accoustic show, but have never taped one.

this is my set up:

sound professionals cmc8(w/low sensitivity modification>sp sbs11@69>mic in>r9>2gb memory card

its the low sensitivity of the mics that concern me. they work fine for super
loud shows.

would i have to change the mic gain to high, or would it be ok to leave
it at low.

any help would be appreciated. thanks

Re: recording accoustic

Is it truly acoustic (no PA)? If there's a PA, it won't be hugely different. If not, I'd get as close as possible. Run a good bit more gain on the R-09 than usual. You'll likely not be able to get enough without going really high, and thus getting lots of noise. So, run in 24bits so you can boost in post without adding the noise.

Also, run using mic-in instead of line-in, and you'll get a 8dB boost as well (mic-in runs 8dB hotter than the line-in input).

I can't speak as to the mic gain high versus low, as I've never used it.

Hope that helps.

Re: recording accoustic

If he's going to run at 24 bit, he might want to look into a bigger SD card than 2 gb

Re: recording accoustic

Definitely. I'd want 4GB minimum anyway.

Re: recording accoustic

im sure the accoustic will be amplified. sad to say, ive not run a 24 bit recording yet. i dont have any 4gb cards, but i do have several 2gb. swapping em wont be a problem. headliner on 1 card, the other group on another card...its time to get a 4gb card! and i generally use mic in for everything.

Re: recording accoustic

You should be good to go then. If you go 24 bit, you'll get about 2 hours per card. At 16 bit, you'll have 3 hours. If you're running @ 16, try to get the levels as good as possible.

Good luck.

Re: recording accoustic

Don't waste your money on a 4 GB card, go to a 16, or at least an 8.

one of my r9's is formated to 1.30 or 1.31, dont recall which now. so the 8gb or 16gb would be good to go on it?

wouldnt you know it? showed up late to the accoustic bit. never thought wino would have opened on the clutch tour. sad about his bass player.
