    I want to record the room/crowd sound at one our shows, what type of mic should I use to do this and should I place a couple around the room and where? Obviously its going to depend on the room?

    I presume you are using a separate mixing desk with spare channels as you could set up a couple of ambient mics on mike stands or taped to the wall or the ceiling (safely), I would probably use something like Audio Technica Midnight Blue range as the 1000 is a good vocal mic but directional, the 4000 is a condenser mic with battery so very sensitive. PMZ square mics sit on walls or floor. Also sound picked up through the mics on stage can be used if you are recording live into the desk.
