We're looking at putting in some sort of microphone(s) for recording in our auditorium. I need to get it off the ground inexpensively, with the hopes that we could upgrade in the future.
Does anyone actually make a mount system for this type of install? It will be semi-permanent, as access will be extremely limited, and we want it in place at a moment's notice... I'm figuring two condensers in an X-Y configuration.
Second, could I get recommendations for microphones for this type of system? I'd love to see about three budget levels: bare bones - how cheap can i do this (say under $300, if possible), a decent range (500-800), and pie in the sky dreaming :-)
Thoughts, recommendations, random musings on the idea?
