Yes I know that , but you have to go with what is there . An Opera Singers voice is way more powerful that a Rock Singer will ever even think about , They just cannot go there . and in a small room with Hard walls , and a Convoluted Ceiling , the reflections are obnoxious , Add to it a Very large Air conditioner vent about 3 feet in front of the Stereo Overhead mic, a Rode NT4 .
Inside the Piano were a Pair of AKG C214’s with Low cut filter on the Treble side mic for better separation .
I have just spent the entire day , trying to get Phase Variance distortion out of these files , I managed to get 95 % of the Air conditioner out , and am quite happy about that , Thank you Wavelab , and Sonnox Noise Remover . Awesome Sauce . But The Room itself is the main problem now . Her voice was so big in spots the Room began to compress with frequencies bouncing off of the walls and Ceiling back into themselves creating Phase issues big time .
Still have work to do . But I will conquer , I always do .
