Recording a music performance in a big space (and lot of reverb!)
I seek advice and I hope the expertise on this forum could enlighten me: I have a shoot in 2 week, it’s a Chinese New Year Celebration performance which is going to be pre-recorded due to covid. The performance has few instruments (mainly drums) and I’m quite worried as I’m familiar with the space, imagine a big warehouse with very high ceiling and not many things around. Unfortunately they don’t have any sound op on budget and therefore they relying on a usable sound captured from me. It’s a small gig so I will be shooting on a mirrorless, I will bring my basic audio setup (radio mics, Rode Video Mic Pro and Zoom H1).
So what would be the best option for me to capture a decent audio? My thoughts are to use the Rode Video Mic Pro and try to get good levels but I was wondering if anyone got some hints or tricks to try to get the best possible sound?
it’s a pain not to have a sound operator on board for this one!
Thanks in advance!
