I knew you had each made good use of the specials. I found it interesting that you made use of opposite sides of the deals. :)

Talley, what type of microphones are you looking for?

Just something to stick in the back. Stereo. either a single stereo mic or dual monos or something hell I dunno something better than whats in the darn camera.

I have the tascam 60D now but no mic. I know getting up close is best but not an option anymore. Picked up too much stage noise.

Can you avoid the stage noise if you use a directional microphone? A shotgun microphone (named for the appearance rather than the scatter of pellets from a shotgun) might work for you.

It appears the Pluraleyes bonus from B&H is done.

I don't see a huge difference but I'm not keen on the detailed specs either. I still have my DR-60D from the original sale of 179.99 and I haven't even used it yet.

Still need a Mic!

Ideally a two shotgun mic setup that is 5' from the kids singing on stands would be the best way. This would put the mic in front of the piano. He has the piano very close to the kids in front so anything at the front of the stage picks up mainly piano plus stage noise.

I'm thinking a 3 mic setup would be key here. two on kids left and right and one on the piano and have the levels adjusted just right.

I have no clue how to approach him on the idea though.

I wanted to post the release of the new Tascam DR-60DmkII for anyone on POTN interested in video, and I thought one thread covering both models might be useful, rather than losing (burying) the questions/answers/comm​ents in this thread.

I suggest you get a microphone, or several, before you upgrade a model you haven't even used yet! :)

You might ask for some time to talk with the stage director about your desire to cleanly record the sound of each component (singer, singer, piano). If the stage director will take the time to talk with you, you can then discuss using separate microphones for each component, (so that you can balance/mix levels in post), and doing so in a manner that will not take away from the view of the audience members.

Ya... I don't see the need to upgrade. I sold my Tascam DR-40 for the same price I paid to buy the 60D and got a free plural eyes in the process that I sold for 75 so I basically got a free upgrade to the 60D but lost mic.

Yup. Just haven't done so.
