Seems like most places want a recording of the bands now prior to booking. I can see why due to a few are scary. But it is another burden on musicians. The guys in my one band Skrap Metall were all depressed cause money is needed to do live recordings professionally. Wait.. I'm considering myself pro. So damn it! Here is a run down. I used a Dell laptop with FireWire. Presonus FireProject interface (8 channel). The DAW was Capture, from Presonus. Whatever a channel hears gets recorded. Raw data wav files. Then exported all files to a thumb drive in wav format at 196 k.
Imported to Apple Logic Pro X and boom. Here is the result. Inexpensive home recording.
