Hi everyone,

I will probably post this on the the "Piano Forum" as well, not knowing which would give me the best response.

I have done a search and did come up with some older info, but would like to hear what you composers do in regards to recording an acoustic grand piano.

My situation is that I have a very "live" room with hardwood floors, throw rugs and vaulted ceilings.

I would like to record my Estonia 190.

Questions:

1.) What are the best microphones to use?

2.) Where should they be placed, particularly since the environment that they are in is quite "live".

FYI: I will be running the mics through a quality pre-amp that is connected to a Mac using Logic 7.

Thank you for any advice and/or suggestions.
