[This just in from Tone from Live at the Loft, an amazing music video production cleverly disguised as a music venue. All shows are invite-only, free, recorded by a StudioLive 24.4.2, and filmed by a really nice camera. As a result, their website is rife with high-quality live performance footage from about a zillion bands, and if you look close you’ll spot a StudioLive in some of them! Tone gave us a little more info about his recording rig for The Loft. It follows.]
We’ve got a 50′ 16 channel XLR stage snake connected right to the StudioLive 24.4.2
. The stage snake also connects our stage monitors from the AUX outs of the board. The StudioLive is connected to an i7 Mac Laptop running Capture
. We record the DJ sets and live performances through the console and Capture, which usually run about 4 or 5 hours in total. From there, I export the stems from Capture, zip them and upload to WeTransfer for download by our audio engineer in California.
The main reason the StudioLive 24.4.2 kicks butt for us is its ability to control the house mix separately of the mix to disk. That, and its rock-solid reliability, and that it records 24 tracks over FireWire.
