Recording a 6-8 piece string ensemble


New member
Hi, I am trying to record a 6-8 piece violin and cello ensemble. It´s for my wedding. Which is better? Pickups for all the instruments into a mixer direct to PC or capture the whole sound on a pair of stereo condensors? Anybody tried either way?
Don´t know the answer, but let me the first one in this forum to say: Congrats!
Hey thanx man, that was unexpected!

Anyway, still trying to sort things out. Having problems finding pickups now , no recorder, only one condensor, no mixer. NIGHTMARE!
are you recording this for playback during the wedding or you actually wish to record this during the wedding?
