Thread Name: Omnidirection microphone for session
Subject: Omnidirection microphone for session
I am wanting a microphone that will pick up all the players in an Irish session without specifically mic-ing anyone up, or plugging them in.
has anyone got any experience with using the sort of omnidirectional mic that sits in the centre of a table, or the ones that dangle over your head?
what works? what doesn't? any brands better than others?
are there any which can automatically turn down the banjos when a harp is playing? (just kidding all you banjo players) - but seriously - is that a problem for any of you that have used them eg the louder instruments drown out the quieter ones?
