if possible, i would do a multitrack recording and record the
electronics and instruments separately. for example, i recently did a
recording of tony conrad and genesis breyer p-orridge at issue
project room where i brought my mac book pro and digi002 box to the
gig, took direct feeds of tony & gen (3 channels) a feed from my
binaural head (2 channels) and two extra mics for additional
instruments (2 channels.) worked flawlessly and sounded great. this
way i can mix the binaural with the direct feeds if needed, though
the binaural sounded so great on the recording that i didn’t really
need much extra. oh, and just in case i also took my little olympus
CF recorder as a backup and had it standalone with its internal mics,
in case of a pt meltdown. fyi, my binaural head cost about $200 to
build and makes great sounding recordings. plenty of stuff on the web
about making a head and the mics…
