Professional live recording
Live recordings of classical concerts often suffer from a distant, coloured sound, background and audience noise, narrow stereo image, and a lack of clarity, presence, depth and spaciousness. We can record your live concert to a sound quality comparable to that found on commercial recordings. Fees depend on location, concert duration and type of ensemble, but will usually be less than £100.
Options range from a high-quality document of the concert to a multi-track recording that allows for additional clarity and presence, as well as balance adjustments – of course, this entails more microphones, but these will be placed as discreetly as possible while still capturing a good sound. We can also record rehearsals or a patch session and edit these into the live recording as required.
Below are some examples of our live recording.
