Thank you so much for the replays everyone! im new to this forum and am very grateful. Ill do my best to help others with my limited student knowledge!
Iv got allot of ideas now i guess ill have to just hope it goes well on the day. Ill let you all know how it goes!
Other musical events must go on in theis room? Sit in the audience for a few of them, holding your trusty Zoom H4 (or whatever). You'll either get a pleasant surprise, or realsie you have a problem.
If you can get this job done with a simple stereo pair (or - heck - use the Soundfield if one's lying around :-) it will save a lot of fussing. Sure, send as many other mics as you have to as many other tracks as you have. Belt-and-braces is good! But if you don't need them in the mix, rejoice!
Don't forget to monitor the recording - all the way through, if only on headphones. Find out about that noisy cable, that bad connection NOW, not when you're mixing. If I were your teacher, and feeling mischievous, I might even nudge my mobile phone right where it could do most harm half-way through! Not fair? It happens in real-life recording situations.
