    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    This would generally be for smaller venues where it would be as acoustic as possible. Only amplification would be bass through an amp and maybe some piano through the pa. Though, yeah that already could cause some problems... I don't intend to take this all the time, but would just bring it for...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Ok, so what I think I should gather from all that is basically that any of these reputable devices will be plenty good and that the irregularities coming from different rooms, ambient noise, and probably first and foremost my lack of skill, will far outway the differences between these devices...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Yeah that all makes sense to me. I think I'm going to settle on the soundcraft. I do move around a bit but i try to reign that in when recording. Of course i don't mind the live aesthetic that sometimes includes brief moments of the sax not being directly on. I also have my sd systems condenser...

    A little more background. The Dutch copyright organization just made some money available for composers to apply for funding to produce their music. I'm applying for this now and it seems pretty straight forward so I think there's a good chance I'll get it. That's part of the impetus for getting...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Yeah the stereo mic room recording is also something I'm open to and have done before. But I do create annoying musical situations sometimes, playing with an acoustic bass in a very loud setting etc... Can definitely be nice to get the bass miced up and once you start there... Also, while I...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Actually what about this guy? The Zoom LiveTrak L-20R Maybe that's all I need. Though it is a little confusing, do I need an ipad to use it or would a new Dell XPS 13 work...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    So, now I'm rethinking all of these options: Focusrite Clarett 4 pre + OtcoPre, Zoom LiveTrack and Tascam Model 24. Let me describe the exact scenario and see if that helps. Warning for all you audiophiles, this process may sound heretical. This would be for either live recording or live style...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Hey Dave I don't doubt your assertions at all. I just don't know enough about audio gear to know what matters and what's bull shit.... Ask me about saxophones and i can call out the bull shit very quickly!

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Yes I guess that's my idea of "sound quality" as well. Though I am now intrigued, my friend gave me the impression that the Tascam was just a lesser bit of kit than the Clarett combo. As in cheaper pre amps and such because it's doing so much, at that price point, not everything is top notch...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Oh that perspective is more than welcome. I'd have to ask my friend but your second to last sentence probably answers it. I'll looking for the most neutral, accurate sound reproduction possible. If the tascam has analog coloring, though it may sound "good", it's not really what I'm looking for...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    AH yes, this would be for a mobile set up. Though, honestly it's more for specific occasions. It's not something I'd be touring with. Still, I'll check out the Gator 4U. Could come in handy. Thanks for your help! Now time to investigate some microphones...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Ok, after consulting a recording engineer friend of mine, I'm going to go the AI route. Focusrite Clarett 4 pre and OctPre for a total of 12 analogue inputs at around 1200 euros. About the price of the Tascam or a couple hundred more than the Zoom, but my friend said the Focusrite will have much...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    One potential problem i see with the tascam is it has one switch for phantom power. Doors that mean it's either on for all mics or off? Id be recoding from a mix or mics so that might be a deal breaker...

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Wow thanks that may be perfect actuality. Out of curiosity howwould this compare to a motu m- 16? Any reason to consider spending twice as much on that?

    Audio interface with 12 inputs, basic live recording questions

    Hello everyone, Sorry, I know AI's have been discussed to death but honestly I don't have that much time before a deadline to read through it all... I'm looking at putting together a basic live recording set up. Basically I need an AI with enough inputs to record sax, bass, drums and piano. I...
