I’m trying to figure out the best way to route everything to capture rehearsals.
Band consists of:
Bass, guitar, mandolin, drummer, 3 vocalists (bassist and mandolin sing leads and backup for other singer who sometimes plays washboard)
Here’s what we have:
Presonus Fireproject 8 channel interface
Connected to pc through FireWire card
Mackie 12FX mixer
Two powered monitors
Hartke amp with XLR out (bassist)
Fender amp with XLR out (mandolin)
Orange amp without XLR out (guitarist)
MXL 63M condenser microphone
Bass drum mic
The mics we use for vocals are an SM57, SM58, and an SM48. During rehearsals those are going into the Mackie mixer which is connected to the powered monitors. The monitors have two channels each and also XLR outs. My goals are to have it set up for rehearsals where we can get a decent level for everybody’s instruments and vocals and from time to time, do more focused multitrack recordings.
Thanks for any input you may have!
