Recording your live gigs

Discussion in 'Ask Janek Gwizdala' started by Christian Houmann, Apr 1, 2009.


  1. Hi Janek

    On you Podcast 8 you talked about recording your gigs on the upcoming tour. Which recording setup you use? On live at 55 bar you used two stereo mics right?

    Thanks
    Christian

    Not sure what we're going to use on the upcoming tour. Probably a zoom or edirol digital recorder. Keeping it pretty simple for this one.

    I'll try and expand the recording set up for the road one www.artonearth.com is in full swing.

    Easy,

    Janek
     
  3. Thanks!

    Did you two stereo mics on live at 55 bar into a desktop?

    two mics into an alesis masterdisk hard drive recorder.

    pretty basic and straightforward.

    Easy,

  5. hi janek,
    sorry if this is too much of a 'geary' question - but was wondering what you think of the edirol recorders for live recording? have any of your bootleg series been recorded on one? thinking of investing in one and would be good to hear your experience with them.

    no idea about the machine actually, never used it but I hear great things about it.

    I've always used a Sony PCM D1 - http://www.zzounds.com/item--SNYPCMD1

    really high end piece of gear, sounds great for a live gig.

    Easy,

  7. Just to add to Janeks response, several my friends have the Sony PCM D50. It's not as expensive or functional as the PCM D1, but it still sounds and functions great. I've heard several recordings from them and they're all very clear. Very "live at the 55" sounding.

    An Edirol R09 will work fine, gives rise to great recordings and has decent built in mics. The new Zoom H4n is also a good recorder. There are a lot of offerings and price points to choose from these days from Sony, Yamaha, Edirol/Roland, Marantz, Zoom, Tascam, Olympus.
