I would have multiple mics


I would have multiple mics above the bagpipe players, like, one mic above 2 players, and then another mic above 2 other players, etc. Then point a shotgun downward toward the drummer. Have all the mics feed into a mixer and adjust the audio levels of each mic until you get results you are happy with.

In my opinion, I don’t think you should do it live. Just fake it. Shoot your video so it looks live if that’s the look you’re going for, but then go back a record each individual one at a time so you can fine-tune all the audio. Then just lay your fine-tuned audio under your video and you have the look of a live shoot with nice audio. Make sense?
