live sound recording setup
I'm about to start doing audio/video recordings at concerts.
I'm recording solo acoustic sets doing folkish-bluesy, psychedelic, rock styled stuff for the most part.
I have a nice set of AKG in ear headphones, Focusrite Scarlett 18i6 interface, VAIO laptop, Sony Handycam, Radial Pro DI direct box, ART Pro split mic splitter, Monster Powerconditioner, Neumann KMS105 condenser, Heil PR30B, Heil PR35S.
Right now I'd like to use the splitter and thruput on the DI box to run signals to my Scarlett interface to 1) record and 2) create an in ear monitor mix
then I'll send the other signals to FOH. Since I play in various venues the PA system can change.
I also own my own PA system pair of Mackie Thump 15's and a Soundcraft Notepad 124 mixer for what it's worth.
Basically I'm wondering if any of you guys have any suggestions for the best way to go about this, is what I have adequate for making the best possible "budget" live recordings?
Would I be better suited upgrading to a mic preamp/channel strip tailored to getting the most from the KMS105/PR35 for vocals? If I were to upgrade to such a thing (which would also be useful for my project studio) would I still be running a splitter to go to FOH and the interface?
Just curious to see what others have done. Right now I'm open minded to price within reason I don't have a fortune to spend but I'd be willing to spend a bit if the results would be worthwhile.
Mainly interested in just the vocals and acoustic signals, I may consider miking the room eventually.
