  • 1812 Overture

    Just got a call from a symphony out of Nevada who want to do a performance of this great number for next years July 4th celebration. Waiting to hear back if they are using a real or recorded cannon. Glad I have plenty of subs!!

      I have a Telarc CD of the 1812 Overture and it has a warning label on it that you can damage

      your loudspeakers from the cannon recording part of the CD if your not careful.

      Dynamic range.

    Just found out they will have a number of real cannons from a civil war re-enactment group. This should be fun.

      That should now start the debate over the best cannon microphone. Surely, everything needs to be mice'ed... ;-)

      Cannon is a weird word in that the singular and plural are the same word (no "S" at the end).

    That would of course be a shotgun mic since they're in the same family !!

      OK, you win. That was truly funny...

    Just because you will not be micing the cannon doesn't mean you don't have to worry. The bleed through the orchestra mics will be huge!!!

      Yep they have not made the noise gate that can keep a cannon out. HPF all around for what little might be gained.

      Show the metalheads a thing or two about "stage volume" lol

        Tommy,

         

        I believe there was a thread over on PSW or SF about miking canons. If you havent already you should check it out, might have some good advice for you.

      I'll check it out but can't believe I'll have any need.

          I suspect the only folks shooting from horseback were in the movies or an occasional pistol shot close up in desperation. And I hope they have something figured out as to how to syncronize the cannon with the music  .

        Looked up a few sites concerning the plural usage of Cannon. Not much agreement, some say no "s", others say to use it, one site said it didn't matter.

          Ah yes - the dumbing down of America. I blame it on that Hippity Hoppity cRap music - Cannons and Mooses and Deers, oh my!

        I pretty sure they're not actually firing a projectile.
