    Hey Dugsnack! Great musical taste! I need to check out some of the artists in your library. I'm curious to know what you would think of my friends' band, MANKIND: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bedN-v9QMwc . Cheers from Sweden

    So yeah. I know I'm giving a lot of information in the last few messages but once you see everything it's not too bad. If by any chance you make it to sleepmakeswaves tomorrow/tonight at the espy I can show you my complete setup and explain it a little more in detail to you. It is quite hard to do via this shoutbox. Otherwise... I hope I can make it to the show on Saturday night...

    To record from the soundboard I'd recommend that you get an RCA to 3.5mm cable. RCA is the red/white cable's you'd find with most dvd players (red meaning right channel, white meaning left channel), while 3.5 mm is a standard headphone jack (which will probably plug into your recorder). As most modern soundboards have an RCA output this works quite well. However, some of the older soundboards only have 1/4" outputs which isn't a hassle because if you have the RCA to 3.5mm cable you can buy some adaptors to transfer from 1/4" to RCA. I'm pretty sure they only cost about $5 from Dick Smith.

    For the desk recordings. As I have 2 iRivers which makes it a little easier as I record soundboard to one and audience to the other but some people have just the one 4 channel recorder where they can record audience and soundboard into the same recorder (these retail for close to $1000 though).

    I almost always clip the mic to myself. Generally with big shows (festival hall, rod laver, sometimes the palace) I will have the mics clipped to a hat and stand closer to the soundboard so as to have clearance over the crowd but still a good sound. At smaller gigs I clip them to my lapel and stand closer to the speakers to avoid the crowd but get a full sounding recording. Very rarely I will record a show without the mics on my persons. Last time this happened was at Fucked Up. This was a rare case where I had permission from the band to record a soundboard and as such the soundguy was cool with whatever I did so I had my mics placed on this big box thing by the soundboard facing the speakers directly.

    No problems mate. Glad to have another taper hanging around Melbourne. Just a warning though. The guy who makes the microphones can be a little slow building them and since he's located in Canada shipping can be slow as well. However, if you get the zoom before the mics come I can loan you my old pair of mics until yours arrive. They are the model down from the CA-14 but still produce some great results.

    lastly. As for editing I don't really do anything at all rather than split the recording into tracks and fade in and out. Sometimes I'll cut down the encore time by doing a cross-fade (usually I'll cut the 'offstage time' to about 50 seconds) but other than that nothing. Very rarely I'll get a horrible sounding recording that I'll try to clean up by reducing the bass or adding vocals but that is rarely. I like to keep the recordings sounding like they did on the night I saw them.

    If you do plan to plug into the soundboard at some point I'd recommend getting a second recorder and recording an audience source as well. Generally with smaller venues the soundboard will deal mainly with drums and vocals. For shows like this I stand as close to the stage as I can to pick up all the sound coming off the stage (everything but drums and vocals) which I then later merge with the soundboard for a really good recording. Usually it works great but sometimes it's not that good at all. But as I always say.. A shitty recording of a show is better than no recording.

    Fantastic. Here is a link to a forum where the guy who made my mics posts: http://taperssection.com/index.php?topic=141135.0 You may need to sign up though to view it. The mics I have are the CA-14 CARD which gor for $129.00. But again.. they are fantastic microphones for the price. As for plugging into the desk. I would never recommend using a desk feed as your only source in a smaller venue as all you'll get from there is drums and vocals. In medium to big venues it's a good choice but I'd still go for an audience recording anytime. It just sounds more real... if that makes sense. The soundboard will sound great but it will be too clean and won't have that roomy sound to it. As for location when recording. By the soundboard is generally a good bet. Although I've had some great results just standing next to the speaker stack. This not only makes the sound clearer but also reduces the amount of audience noise in the recording.

    Hey mate how are you going? How much are you looking to spend on the microphones? The ones I use I can't talk up enough but they are around $120 a set which is great value for the quality they produce. Shaun (who also posts to my blog) got this one for pretty cheap http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=AM4106&CATID=87&form=CAT2&SUBCATID=1025#4 and they results are quite good too. Maybe download a few recordings of both of ours and see the results they give and work out how much you want to spend versus the quality you want to get out of it.
