    I recently played an outdoor event held inside a walless pavilion. I had two SP-2's close to the outside edge of the area. I thought the sound was great as I listened to others speak and MP3 music. I hung a 1" condenser mic from the rafters about the middle of the area a little toward the band stand. The quality I obtained was low. I guess a lot of doppler effect going on. Should I, in future attempts, place the mic about 15' in front of one of the FOH main speakers and set the gain to compensate for the SPL?

    I assume that your looking for a copy of what you heard the night before? Or a 'live version' of an album?

    No matter where you stick one mic, it will be nearly impossible to get your obtained affect. The pros get a copy of all the inputs and mix them in with audience mics. So with your set up, ask FOH if you can get a copy of their main mix and keep the SP-2's where they were.
