    Default quick update

    well the job has morphed back to a minimum of 8ch with 4 mics, 2 ch from the foh (the mix) and 2 splits (lead vocals). And we are only worried about touring NZ.

    That simplifies things a bit - and leads me back to Peluso for a P-Stereo and a couple of Fet SD mics, 4 ch of splitters, a firewire soundcard and a laptop.

    Let's see how long the spec stays like this for the show

    here is the sound of two Blue Omnimouse microphones about 12 feet high and 5 1/2 feet apart over a string quartet a few weeks ago. Great sounding hall, which certainly helps.

    Grab a pair of Blue Omnimouse mics if you can still find a pair. The Blue B4 capsule inside is a fairly decent reverse-engineered facsimile of the old M50 Neumann (oh how tragic for them to have killed one of those, though, even if hundreds of nice microphones came alive as a result of the painstaking study) Anyhow, I had 2 Omnimouse mics hung 25 feet above the stage, about 7 feet apart, while a symphony did a full public gig, complete with piano soloist. Results most excellent. But the Omnimouse depends on having a lot of air around it to work its magic, and in a small room with tight slap-back echo you'll never appreciate the tool for what it does best. JG, Toronto
