Shooting Classical guitarist
We're shooting a classical guitarist sat. night in a small church, small audience.I've recorded her before in my home studio with an Akg 414, close mic, and it sounds great. I was thinking of adding another channel to capture the church ambient sound audience, etc. I want the414 track discreet, so I'll leave it far left in stereo on the xl2.
Should i place the addl. mic on the stage, or back in the aisle near the main camera?Which mic?
Here's what I have in my audio collection:
Oktava mc 12 w/ 3 heads
Shure 58 and 57.
AT 813 ( old uni electret condensor mic- I use it handheld for interviews)
RCA 44 ribbon mic( only kidding...have one though).
I'd appreciate any help.

Oktava MC012 with either the cardioid or omni head. My cardioid head sounds very wide open, very omni-like, but it does have a small null point that could be used if there's some problem sound you want to attenuate. Is there a practice that you can test mic placement? It will take a little experimentation and it will also be helpful if you have a way to monitor each mic separately, in both ears with each mic separately and the mono mix in both ears.
Using the audio outs of the camera into two inputs of a small mixer is helpful for this.
Remember to protect the mic from drafts of air and rumble through the floor stand.

Thanks Jay.Btw...what do you suggest to protect the base of the stand from noise with the Oktava?

The easiest way is to use a shockmount for the mic itself, just like you would on a boompole.
