Thread Name: Live Recording Advice
Subject: RE: Live Recording Advice
So many things to consider... We usually perform in this particular room with no mics, no sound system at all. I'm beginning to think that this experiment should probably keep it simple, and I'm leaning toward "hinting" for a minidisc recorder for Christmas. Then, get a sound engineer to record from our single mic setup directly through his board.
If it doesn't work as a CD, at least we'd get a good idea of what we sound like and the feedback (good kind) should be useful.
Another problem is that a program of Civil War music would probably be better presented with no electronics, no mics and wires and technical distractions! Hmmmm, artistic integrity or posterity? Arrrrrghhh!! (Subject for another thread).
