I need to record a upright piano. My interface only has a program for plugging one mic in so keep to tecniques to one mic only please. I need microphone suggestions as well. I've got a shure sm57 but I've heard that they arn't good for micing pianos. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

You will want a condenser. A great option would be an AKG C1000. Do you have a budget?

yeah I had heard a lot of good things about condensers. I guess I've got upwards to around $200. I'd rather spend less than that though.

just whack a mic into the top of the piano. not too far in though.
at least thats what i did in a live situation and that was fine.

Sm57's work fine with pianos.... well they did with my sisters... wait thats a grand/baby grand technique... any way its you have a figure 8 mic in the middle and then an sm57 pointing down in the blind spot.
