This is my first post to the forum, and I must say I am impressed. Anyways, I was thinking about buying an old protools III system of eBay, rack it, and start recording live shows. after the recording is done, take it back to my studio and do the post production/ mixing. Anyone used this kind of setup before? My idea is to use channel outputs from the FOH board, (so i dont need to bring my own mics, and preamps) combined with a stereo mic, or an XY'd pair of mics to mix in. Has anyone put together a rig like this? How much pain can an old mac take?
