Big instrument, little mic

August 9, 2004

My little brother had an organ recital recently, and since there was no recording equipment in the church he played at, I recorded it on my lil’ MD and Sony mic. My poor little mic and MD seemed way too puny to be recording such a huge instrument like a pipe organ (even if it wasn’t a huge one), but the recording really wasn’t too shabby. I recorded it from the church’s balcony since it was the only way to get the mic up to the same height as the pipes and since the church isn’t very long, it produced farily accurate sound I think. The only thing I did with this excerpt was to normalize the audio signal and encode to ogg.
