Subject: RE: Live Recording Advice
You might try a stereo pair in the house along with what ever else you decide to do. I've had a lot of success using to PZMs (Pressure Zone Microphone) attached to a wall (using what in the UK we call "Blue Tak") a few feet apart. This produces a really atmospheric recording with a great stereo image.
It depends what you want to end up with. I like live recordings warts and all. for listening to on headphones the space that is created is wonderful.
I think the best thing to do is to use as many different techniques at the same time as you can and pick and choose later. Why not make the house stereo version available for people like things recorded that way?

All the best PP.
