My needs are pretty simple. I'm in a Senior Drum and Bugle Corps. It's near the end of our season this summer and I'd like to make some audio recordings during our final practice before Finals. Our final rehearsal weekend is this coming weekend and so my timeline is short. This won't be anything remotely professional, but just something to keep for mementos and to distribute to others in the corps. For those that have no idea of what Senior Corps is, just think professional marching band without woodwinds, so we're talking brass and percussion spread out moving on a football field. I don't want to do something crappy like a walkman recording with a single mike but I certainly can't afford to go out and purchase high quality microphones, audio mixing software, mixing board, etc. I just want to make the best audio recording I can with equipment I could buy at Best Buy or something similar (audio only). Could anyone suggest some options? I know some people dub live Corps performances using dual small microphones hooked to a Personal Dat Recorder. Would this be able to deal with the enormous changes in volume? I do mean enormous. I figured this might be a decent group to ask this kind of question. Thanks for any responses.
