Default Re: Recording a live show questions

I've spent years recording live shows. although before Protools...

If all you want is a stereo representation, the Shures will get you that. It probably won't be a very good recording for a release, because you are at the mercy of the sound person and the band's levels onstage.

You can make it better: I'd probably record a little bit and listen back...move the mics, make adjustments, try again, like that. Without the audience. Tweak as long as you can. The vocals are key.

As far as drive space, stereo tracks are 20 mb per minute. you can do the math.

I heard that PT8 will let you record till the drive is full, but I haven't check for myself. I think the old limit was a 2GB file.

Good luck.
