Its a little messy at the moment, but I'm making sure everything works, checking acoustics, waiting for mic stands and making space in the room...it will be tidy by the time they arrive, or not. I really have no idea what's supposed to happen and how it will work, I know that because of the names mentioned there will probably be a lot of people, so I'm just playing things by ear.
Lewitt microphones for vocals, you like it?

Are you still in the ADT land?

Hello John,

Thanks for your post.

In fact yes and no...

I have 2 flight cases and a backpack.

In the backpack, 2 computers.

In the "régie" flight case 3 interfaces:
1 Madiface XT,
1 Madiface Pro
1 UFX

1 22" screen

The microphones in a 6U drawer (with lock)

In the other flight case, the "stage" one, microphone stands and all the stuff, audio cables, Madi cables, Madi preamps, APC, tools, etc.

On location: one flight goes close to the stage and the other one in the control room, or backstage, or where I'll be...

2 MADI interfaces and 2 computers for redundancy.

1 UFX in case... I have a problem and need to go the old way, I have a 20in / 30 meter snake in my little van and the Toslink and wordclock cables to set up a 20 in system with 2 of the RME Octamic XTC.. but this is the last step before I stop everything and go to a bar!

This saves me a lot of time when I set up and gives me enough safety for my clients.

Salutations de Bern,

Fred.

Looks really good

Though, in the UK, I often have flights of steps at the venue - especially old churches and concert halls.

Yes and yes, and I've added Austrian Audio to the list...these are some of the microphones I carry and use for live gigs anyway, none of these microphones were brought especially for the recording.

What DAW for the rpi? And how much can you throw at it (sample rates/track count/etc?)

Pi runs linux, recording with ‘sox’ via shell schript (by iphone over ssh; pi is wifi AP). Echo2 is my only usb.audiointerface, so only used two tracks so far; 24/192 is no problem, haven’t had a single dropped frame so far. Runs for hours on battery.

Here for the gear
 

Big projects... 24 track console (MX8000) Alesis HD24, stage snakes, Boxes of pre-amps and compressors available -but rarely taken out (I would record "dry" and do any processing later...)
Little projects... Tascam DR-70D. - WAV files loaded into DAW

At least that was up until last month. Now, I've sold all the desks, live sound desks, studio desk, outboard compressors, outboard pre-s, reverbs, HD24, the BRC flight and cases for all of them... and purchased an A&H SQ5...

So now I have the 4 track field recorder DR-70.
a 16 track SQ5 that can multi track to memory stick. (these are only good for documentary as neither allows punch in! - or at least I haven't found the ability in the SQ to do that.)

I will be expanding the A&H with stage boxes and a Dante card allowing me 32 track desk, stage boxes and PC attached with USB, or 64 track with desk, stage boxes, network switches and PC. (both of which will allow th desk to be a control surface for a DAW and allow proper punch in for over dubs.)

The best bit (for me) is I can now happily lift all the equipment at once! and it'll all fit inside a normal family car quite happily. - I've gone from needs van, to could fit the gear on the passenger seat alone. I've got more channels better quality and less crap to carry about.


Of course the penalty is I've not completely lost the old "tape esq" way of working through the console and now must work in software, but I think i'm ok with that.
