Piano recording

I’m using Audacity on my MacBook Pro, OSx 10.5.8, wanting to record from the live piano via a Blue Snowball USB mic. This may not be strictly an Audacity matter, but I’d like some suggestions about the best way to mic a piano – position, settings, etc. – if possible. Thanks for anything.

record from the live piano

What kind of live piano? We just covered a multi-chapter thread by somebody trying to mic his upright.


I’m also trying to mic an upright. Thanks.
