Remote recording upgrade
I'm looking to upgrade my live recording system.
Currently it's a Roland VSR880, a mixer or two, condenser mics and a pile of cabling.
What I get out of it sounds good, but aside from the bulk and piles of cabling,
it's prone to vibration issues, has antiquated SCSI/Rbusse connectivity,
and I have to dump all the tracks in realtime to my recording desk at home.
(Unless I hook up a CDRW -a lengthy process- to do the Data dumps)
I'd like to find something a little more current (and smaller).
I'll have around $350-450USD to play with.
USB or firewire connectivity, at least 8 track-at-once inputs,
assignable phantom would be great, min 2 XLR inputs, quality preamp section,
and would prefer it to work on cards. (16-32gig)
A couple built in condensers would be handy, but not required.
I was looking at the Zoom R16/R24, seems to be in the ball park.
