How to get into Taping

#90521 2 years, 9 months ago
I haven't even thought about taping any shows until now. How much would it cost to get microphones? and just the all around cost for everything i would need

I know what you mean. This couch touring has made me want to try to also. But I'm not. I'm to all over the place at a show. Good luck. I would like to hear a stream from you
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

we've got some tapers here who should shed some light onto this...

i had the same inclination when i was younger. after about 2 years f hitting sporadic shows i thought i hit enough where taping would be worth it. that number only increased to full blown touring within years to follow..

i wish i would have gotten into it back then, because i could have been doing it the entire time.

seems like it is a pain in the ass sometimes with special sections, special tickets, idiots in the crowd, "searching for the sound", etc.

trent would probably be the go to guy on here

i feel like when i asked some old dudes when i was 14 or 15 they told me good mic's were over a grand. i don't know if that's true but i don't doubt it for quality gear.
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

This link may help. I don't know if it is outdated or not.

Regarding equipment, browse the archives. Lots of tapers include what they used.

Glad to be of help.

One of the coolest things happening now is people who stream the show live. Which can be tricky at some concerts. But if you are interested check this out.

I recommend making your way to shnflac.net n poking around there for tech info. You can even get into contact with the cosmic whiz kid Charlie Miller. Or Jamie Waddell known as GEMS ask him about his 6 mic rig sometimes used. Either way there is the entire catalog of audio recordings there to collect lots of kind folks to chat with
