The venue was Malones, a friendly sort of bar in Santa Ana, CA.
The band was The Three Blind Mice.
The song was, "Looking for Trouble".
My usual rig. Two Rodents direct to CDR.
Oh yeah! the music is at:
The band was playing @~110dB! I brought my meter. Also my earplugs. It felt great to listen to both sets, feel the thump from the low end in my body and go home without a throbbing headache from the sensory overload. The bass sounded a lot louder live, so I guess the Rodents aren't the hot choice for that.
This is one step above a "stealth" concert recording.
I'm hoping it's a large step given the effort expended.
This post is about gathering comments regarding that comparison.
I've recorded them elsewhere many times. This is the first one where I was able to position the mics far enough away from their rig to include the vocals coming through the PA. While the drums sounded weaker at the time, everything but the kick cut through the mix quite well. Same Rodent problem as with the bass I suspect.
