I wonder if I could ask your advice on live recording. I'm part of a group that plays in a church setting and we'd like to try live recording in a rather more serious way than we have been. At the moment we've been taking FOH feeds and can mix them with ambient mikes but that produces a very crude mix. We'd like to attempt multitrack live recording so we can mixdown at a later stage and add fx as appropriate. The band we have consists of drums, bass, acoustic piano, synth, 2 guitars, sax, lead vocal and 3 BGV. All of these are miked and fed via multicore to a 32 channel Allen & Heath console. There we can add fx for the live mix. We have a congregation of around 600 people so can have 2 ambient mikes to pick up them. What would be really helpful to know is if someone has experience of live recording a setup like this to save us reinventing the wheel. I guess we have a number of options. One would be to split the signal going into the FOH desk so we can have a feed to a hard disk recorder. Any suggestions on what type of splitter device we could use? Alternatively we could try taking group mixes from the desk and recording those. Currently we have an 8 channel MOTU interface for HD recording but think we might need more channels if we want more control over what we have recorded. I'd appreciate any advice or tips people have particularly if you have done this before. Many thanks.
