1. Live on-site audio recording (also called ‘remote’ recording):
Concert bands, orchestras, choirs, gospel groups, recitals, jazz bands, blue grass, speeches/narrations, competition/audition ‘tapes’, voice-over (sing or play to your background music). Live on-site recording works best on performances that are entirely acoustic in nature, although a few electronic instruments (whose amplifiers can be miked) are acceptable.
(On-site may be your home, school, church, auditorium, outdoors, or other venue). For voice-overs, and in some cases for small groups of 1-4 performers, it may be convenient to record at our home location). Click for recommendations and tips on recording.
