Heh, that's what Mrs. NRitH thinks, too
. Thanks for the offer, but thieves' honor stipulates that nobody makes money on this stuff. I'll be pissed
if I see my recording show up on eBay, but what can I do?
As for the actual equipment, if any of you are interested in doing this yourself, here's my setup, based on recommendations from robert
Samson Zoom H-2 digital recorder
Sound Professionals in-ear binaural microphones
Sound Professionals microphone battery module
2Gb SD card
Software (on Mac OS X):
(to split tracks, normalize the volume, & convert WAV to AIFF)
iTunes (AIFF > MP3)
I wound up not using the in-ear mikes or battery module for this recording. I used them the other night to record Sinead O'Connor, but they recorded more crowd noise than Sinead herself. Besides, with that battery module, it was a pain to keep the cords straight. But the microphones were better suited to the seated concert-hall setting that Sinead played; for the mosh pit GA floor at Hammerstein, it made sense to just hold the recorder up in the air along with the hundreds of cameras and cell phones.
