I need to record my band...

Published: Tue November 04, 2008  News Feed

Visiting studios can be a very costly affair, and usually just a couple of days will be spent on recording AND mixing something which simply takes a lot more time.

Since the early 90’s Cubase,Pro-Tools and other Audio Sequencers  have changed the face of how audio is edited.  Computers are now so advanced that now even the most humble of modern home PC’s can effectively run a fairly powerful workstation.

Combined with the ever growing range of Audio interfaces available and microphones at prices I previously only dreamed of, there is nothing stopping an interested musician/ engineer from running a full scale production from their rehearsal space or spare room.

 

Equipment round up

Edirol FA-101

The FA-101 is a feature-packed 10x10 audio interface that can handle a full 10 channels of input/output at 24-bit/96kHz. Record and monitor all 10 channels simultaneously in full duplex. Phenomenal audio power for the studio musician! In addition, the FA-101 offers 6-channel recording and playback at 24-bit/192kHz for performance at DVD-A quality.

This system is Ideal for live applications where the user requires multiple sends for live monitoring AND recording. This will do both excellently.

At an event, all of the band's hardware can be routed through the FA-101 to output to monitors and, at the same time, the show can be recorded. During the break, CDs can be burned to sell on the spot. The Performance DJ will rely on the FA-101’s rugged metal chassis for reliable, club-tough operation. Back at home, the FA-101 will return as the centerpiece to the home studio.

M-Audio NRV10


The NRV10™ is a new breed of gear that combines an 8 x 2 analog mixer and a 10 x 10 24-bit/96kHz digital audio interface in one convenient package—the perfect tool for computer-based recording and performance. Route and record mixer channels discretely to individual tracks in Pro Tools M-Powered 7.3, Ableton Live 6 and other software studios. You can also return multiple discrete audio channels from your computer to the NRV10 for CPU-free mixing and monitoring complete with on-board digital effects—great for live performances. And that means you don’t have to change settings like EQ and reverb in your files every time you play a new venue. Flexible monitoring options also make vocal/instrument recording and DJ-style audio previewing a breeze. And the included NRV10 interFX application allows you turn your NRV10 and host computer into a powerful live mixer with access to all of your VST effects. The NRV10 seamlessly integrates your computer with your studio—and bridges the gap between studio and stage as well.
