This is just a bit odd, because I had absolutely nothing to do with them playing at this particular venue, which is just a few miles from my residence . I met Jason, DBDs drummer, last January when I took a road trip to Florida, and had the opportunity to jam with him and WYD in Nashville . Now I come to find out through WYD that they'll be playing TNTs, a bar that caters to some of the local talent . Soooo, I've decided to repay their Southern hospitality, with some Norther hospitality, and record their gig for 'em . WYD and I talked about the best way to go about this using the equipment that I have available last night, and I just thought I'd probe your collective minds as well to be sure that I'm not missing something along the way... I want to give them the best recording that I can offer, so they can go home with a nice 'Live From Detroit' CD . : )
Here's the stats...
- 4 man band: guit, bass, drums, vox .
- 6 soundcard inputs .
- Any/all of my equipment that will get 'er done .
Some of what we dicussed last night is the posability of not being able to run a direct-out of the house board for the singers track(or any other of the instruments for that matter), and the lack of being able to stuff another mic in the singers hand in order to get a decent signal . I'm hoping that the house board will have direct outs, but I won't know until the day of the gig . Micing the instruments is easy enough... it's the singer I'm mainly concerned with on this .
The ideal situation would be a mono track for guitar, bass, and vox, and a sterio mix for the drums consisting of a few mics... all together taking up four tracks of Sonar... then a sterio mix of the house board would take up another, and a crowd-mic making six . I'd like a contingency plan(if possible) to contend with the house board not having any direct outs to employ... especially on the vox . Also, any input on what mics out of my arsenal might be better than others for the jobs they'll be doing might be helpfull .
