Yes, another secret fear revealed! The SDCs that I’m planning to use don’t have pad switches. I have a couple of inline attenuators (-10db I think?) I’ll get a couple more, or is there a better alternative?
The two multi pattern LDCs for the omini main pair do have pads so that’s covered.
I’ve been thinking again about a closer mic for the vocal. I think I will set one up, just as a security blanket, even if a tiny amount of it is used or not at all. If I do, would a good starting position be a SDC about waist height pointing up?
Thanks again. :)
Is she singing from a score? My instinct here would be to have the vocal mic high, pointing down, why? I believe it encourages a better performance, if the mic is at waste height she’ll be tempted to sing down into it, which can restrict the throat, more inspiring to sing looking up, if any of this makes sense, I’m a singer too, and I know mics can be like cameras, you can’t help sing in their direction.
