So my band is playing about once a month. Gigs where we have to bring our own everything, no provided P.A. mainly restaurant. Im looking to do some simple recordings, just so we can have a decent idea hows the sound. In the 1 hour things can be semi hectic, unloading bass amp, guitar amp, P.A. MONITOR, PERCUSSION, MIXING BOARD, miking 2 singers and the percussion and then sound checking. Were not quite smooth enough yet for me to set up my laptop and firewire box. Im wondering if theres any simple way we may have to record. Im not even sure if a mic ran out in the crowd would pick up more of us or them. Were PRETTY low volume.
