I do a lot of live sound for a studio guy. I mainly do it so the shows I promote sound the best I can make them. From the local dive bar playing on the floor to a professional stage, I do my best to make the bands I work with sound the best they can. And from that I do hire out for shows and events.
Below was a great sounding band outdoors in Moriarity, NM. Not a lot of people, but had time to make it sound great. Recorded this with my cell phone.
Live Recordings and 1-Hour Mixes
One really cool thing about having me do live sound is I can also record the show! I do a full multi-track recording (up to 32 channels) and then mix it after. I can do a quick 1-hour mix which is great for demos or low-cost releases. Or if you want to be more serious, we can spend more time mixing to get it just right.
But here are some 1-hour mixes with stories:
Abrams: 6/19/2015 @ The Cave
The Cave is a DIY warehouse venue in Santa Fe where bands play on the floor. It has high ceilings and usually turns into a party. One of the most fun venues in Santa Fe.
BlindDryve: 3/11/2016 @ The Underground
The Underground is a low ceiling basement venue that has been great to me and the metal scene. Small shows are great there and it is a ton of fun to play.
Hartless: 4/25/2017 @ The Decibel Foundry
Ok ok ok, this is cheating a bit. But Hartless rehearses in my studio and we decided to record a few songs for a radio interview. It was a tight budget so I mic’d the rehearsal backline and they did a few takes. This was completely live even with vocals blaring in the room over the PA. After that I did the first mix in 1-hour, then did a few small revisions for a total of 1.5 hours.
