Record First Row, mic under chair
« on: June 08, 2019, 06:04:49 PM »
Hi all,

Tomorrow my favorite poprock Band will play the Last gig and retires.
I really want to enjoy the concert so i decided not to record. I want to enjoy it. But my heart will bleed not having the Last Show on tape - no Matter it is not first class quality as usual.. It is a seated gig and i will be in row number 1.
So i thought maybe to set my church audio omni ca 11 under the Seat and let it go.
I use a batterybox and a Sony pcma 10.

Do you think it might be hearable? Shall i use bass rolloff?
Any other suggestion to keep enjoying it and still record this as a memory?

Thanks in advice!

I'd try to get the mics on your person and up much higher than the floor.

Under the seat you will likely get music but you will also get all the noises of the seats, people's feet, anything that hits the floor, etc.

If you are going to go thru all the trouble to make a recording why not make it the best recording possible?

I have already one record of that Show. I just want to enjoy it for the Last time they perform, but still like to have a record of todays Last gig. Does not need to have highest quality, just to have it for emotional reasons :)

Do whatever you want. If enjoying yourself is more important than getting the tape then make it easy on yourself.

I have put the recorder somewhere besides where I'm sitting ( a ledge, shelf, FOH mix position) when my seat was less than ideal but if this is a not really allowed job you may not have that option.

Yeah, I have done this as well. Mostly when I go see DJs play.

Either do it right or don't bother.  If it sounds like crap you will never listen to it and regret it.  If having fun is more important to you then you made your call.  IMHO putting gear on the floor is a waste off effort.

Put the gear someplace else, on stage or on a wall using gaffer tape, then sign your friggin heart out, just not so loud it’ll get on the recording! :cheers:

It sounds like the OP is saying they play the same setlist every show, which is why he's not worried about quality. But, since this is the subject band's last show, what if they break from their setlist and play some rarities or have something special up their sleeve. I say do it right, or leave the gear at home and just enjoy the show. The fence won't hold a taper, you have to pick a side, trust me......

So back at home and satisfied with the result. Had my Sony pcma10 lying on ground on a jacket. Locut on and rec Level 2 with internal mics. Music is not distorted although very loud with much bass.
In Front of us was the stage about 3m away in eyeheight with a stack pointed to us down  ;)

So maybe this helps other people in a similar situation. :)

Ditto. Gaff the churchies inside a baseball cap, run the wire down shirt, to preamp or battery box. You can dance all you want, I do. Go big or don’t bother. Under the seat is Furbie territory and complete 💩.
