track remote recording. Classical music recording for strings,
organ, vocals, choir, winds, ensembles and full orchestra. Miking
techniques developed for classical music are used, usually Mid/Side.
reverb is desired - that's why a large, live room, like a large
cathedral, is best. Small rooms or homes are the worst places
to record - the inaudible slapback will make your tone sound tinny.
If you need to overdub, isolate tracks or produce a "pop"
sound, a multitrack studio will be rented. Some good sounding
venues are the Meyerson, Mesquite, DMA, and Cathedral Guadalupe.
Mid-Side miking with flank and spot mics are typically used with
orchestras and choirs.
files are recorded into a 16-track computer (96K/24-bit), edited,
mixed down, and any mistakes fixed. Seamless editing down to the
wave level. All tracks are mastered - not just cut straight to
CD - all tracks start and end correctely. Applause is faded out.
A sequence of tracks is determined and WAV files produced.

100%. Expect to spend 6-10 times the amount of recording/editing
time per finished time.
