Some months ago, I have started composing piano music in mostly romantic style (somewhere between Brahms, Rachmaninoff and Albeniz for most pieces). I have recorded some of them as videos using my digital piano but so far I have just posted those videos publicly on my Facebook page. I have used for that recording a BOYA BY-LM10 microphone. Even though that seems to be rather intended for recording speech, the quality is better than when using the built-in microphone of my tablet with which I record the videos.
My first question:
Is such an audio quality acceptable for posting on YouTube?
This being said, I will soon have the opportunity of accessing a grand piano at the home of friends where I may possibly do some recording. But that would involve much more logistics, and apart from that I am wondering:
Would it be in that case advisable to use as well a different kind of microphone (i.e. an omnidirectional one)? Would that make a huge difference in audio quality, how useful for YouTube?
A friend of mine who is very knowledgeable about social networks told me after listening to one on my Facebook page that in his opinion, the audio quality of the digital piano would be largely sufficient even for YouTube. But I am not very sure, especially as that friend is much less knowledgeable about *classical * style music. Others say (generally speaking) that for a YouTube video in order to be appreciated, the quality of the audio is much more important then the one of the image.
