Live Record Any Performance
Why record a live performance?
Capturing your live performance turns a one-off show into a treasured keepsake or valuable product for ongoing use.
Whether you prefer to create physical merch or free online content, live recordings are a fantastic way to provide your fanbase with a product that authentically reflects the experience of your live performance - This also makes it an excellent marketing, promotional and festival submission tools.
If you're well rehearsed and have an audience to feed off, why not!
Who can live record?
Anyone - especially those already using me as a live sound engineer.
Creating a live recording is possible for all performance styles, not just live music.
Musical theatre, lectures or dramatic productions can all be recorded.
Even those which are not amplified, although that would technically be location recording
We're videoing, that will get the sound, right?
Yes, but probably not very well.
This is most definitely the case with any consumer or semi-pro camera set-up.
Even professional videographers (including ones who are incredibly good at what they do) tend to be visually oriented, while the sound quality often suffers by comparison (this coming from fussy-ears).
This may be ok for a dance recital or mime convention, but if sound quality is important to your product, I strongly recommend having it recorded professionally.
Once processed it can be supplied back to the videographers and put in sync with their beautiful images to create a stunningly seamless product.
Can we live record without an audience?
Absolutely! This would likely be considered a location recording.
If there is no audience, there is also no requirement for loudspeakers. Now we can look beyond stage mics and break out the tasty studio mics!
