Recording the performance

Recommended Posts

I am using a Zoom H1 to record my shows. I use a line out of my Fishman Artist Solo or the mixer of my bigger Turbosound IP-2000 rig and it works well. Provided the output of my system isn't too hot, I can get a really accurate idea of what works and what doesn't. I've used this to fine tune my backing track mixes as well as determining the best guitar and vocal sounds. I recommend everyone do this at least from time to time. In some cases, I have even sent edited files to clients as a memento of a particularly good gig. I am sure this is in part responsible for my solo act's success. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

The drawback with taking it off the amp or mixer is you don't get the audience reaction and room ambiance, which is why I periodically shoot video with the my Zoom QN2...the audio is usually very accurate, and I can hear if people are talking while I'm performing....plus I can correct some of the stupid things I do physically during my performance...YMMV, but to me it isn't just the sound I worry about.

Yes I use a small zoom video recorder. I then take the best videos and put them on the facebook page. That way I can point the person booking for a venue to the page. A lot of them ask for videos. Those videos have helped get more bookings.

i run a zoom q8 as often as possible with direction that i dont want videos of me playing...  enough for a glimpse now and again, but i want the focus on surroundings (and people in attendance...  if its a public performance. ).
