Thread Name: Live Recording Advice
Subject: RE: Live Recording Advice
Some interesting ideas here. I like the idea of recording to 8-track from individual mics (which we're also used to) and then being able to mix later, for the best possible chance of fixing problems, even overdubbing.

But then treewind's idea of recording in mono to minidisc and adding reverb later would allow us to use the single mic and skip the need for a sound engineer completely, by bringing our own PA setup and just letting it roll. That would be the lowest cost, but how good are the results from those minidiscs? I've never used or heard one. This might be the best alternative for something that will not come out spectacular anyway, given a live performance.

Thanks for everyone's responses.
