My main question was should I buy some more mics so I can try these
different setups. I've got the idea now that there isn't really any
hard and fast rules and a few different thing might sound quite good.
I think i'll do it on the cheap but grab a couple more mics as I think
we need to get a bit better before the recording is the weak link ;)
Hopefully i'll have some recordings soon for you all to listen too! :)
