Capturing a busker

Task: Capture the performance of a guy playing on the stairway in front of a church. Solution: Panasonic GH5 camera, Tascam DR70D recorder/mics + Sennheiser MKE2 microphone, editing/mastering in Ardour:

I used x42eq, Bricasti M7 impulse responses / reverb, Harrison XT-SC Spectral Compressor, Voxengo Elephant, Calf Compensation Delay Line (adjusting recorder’s mics vs. Lavalier mic). Perhaps some Voxengo Voxformer, can’t remember. All done in Ardour on kxStudio/Kubuntu 16.04. Video editing with Lightworks.


Hi @DrNI,

Think you did a great job capturing the live performance. Felt like I was standing next to the guy, so I think mission accomplished.
