I have been asked to provide p.a. for a school play (class 8 - midsummer nights dream). This is in a small clearing in the grounds...essentially outside in a copse etc. Fidelity not main issue....intellegibility is though (i do understand that they are related).
I will hang mics and hide mics....but...would you counsel a simple set up of mics as if they were a band on stage for example (SM58's or various condensors? - no monitors)....or would there be advantage in having say...a number of stereo pairs variously placed? any thoughts welcome
