Something I've been meaning to do for a long time, but it has been delayed for various reasons. Anyway, I have got a venue booked for later this year, pending what I hope is the formality of exchange of legal documents. It's costing me a fair bit, but it is the best piano I can get my hands on. I have two full days recording time. I would be very grateful if I could get opinions on the uploaded sound sample. I've tried to make it brief, whilst making a compilation of extracts which between them have a variety of dynamics, pianistic effects and moods. These sound samples are taken from my previous live experience on the piano, with the recording equipment I intend to use for the project. In short I would like to know if the sound is adequate for what I'm hoping will be a professional-sounding cd. The sample comprises four different extracts, all from material which is ultimately to be on the resulting cd: the piano is a Steinway Model D whilst the recording equipment is an Edirol R-09HR with a matched pair of Rode NT5 mics. No editing has been applied to the extracts: the MP3 is 192 kHz, produced from the original WAV file. Any thoughts and advice more than welcome. I must admit I'm distinctly perturbed by having spoken to my teacher about the project - he is very much in favour of it, but told me that when he recorded for Decca they used 16 mics! Apologies if this is the wrong place to upload this topic. Chris and Monica, please feel free to move it if so.
