Just found out about this thing, and it looks super coo.
Simply hook it up on a live mixing console through the direct outs or inserts (also works) and hit Rec. Done!
16 channels would be good enough for my band in most situations, even tho we might prefer to use two of the channels (through a small 2 channel mixer) for room mics and then re-record the backing vocals afterwards.
However, I wonder if somebody has a good idea to make DI tracks with guitars? For two reasons, first off I would like to reamp the guitars and bass with a consistant sound on both guitars, and also avoid leaks from other instruments / vocals. Maybe even phase issues.
I have 2x Radial J48 DI's, but those need phantom power and I don't know how to conviniently hook em up with the guitars and mixerbord and shit, since regurlarly those are on two ends of the venue
And has somebody tried this cool thing out? I'm very much thinking of buying one.
That does look very cool for its price! As for getting DIs into it, even the smallest venues I played had some sort of on stage mixer routed to the main desk. While I guess it's not guaranteed every venue has that, it's not the biggest amount of kit to take to a gig, in the hopes they have one.
Otherwise, the alternative is to kit the band out with Axe FXs and grab DI's from that. That only adds €7000 or so to the budget. But you should keep an eye on the Greek eBay for bargains.
