yeah Ive not used that box, just the Mackie version, but they are all similar. def get a run thru and rehearse your levels. maybe 2 days consecutively so you can record your mistakes from day one. get the signal right after analog…pre mute and everything. Some good stuff happens when you dont expect it.
Some other random stuff…
If you mic drum overheads/toms/ rooms/ guitar DI’s etc, put those in the high channel numbers, keep everything you need live, in the low channel numbers. You wont need the extra channels (live) until playback. Less channels are easier to mix (live).
Make sure the live mixer and recording mixer have the same channel numbering, you still need to check and adjust levels mid gig, but try to only adjust gain and subsequently recording (input) levels between songs unless you know you are going to clip. random gain changes during songs suck unless you really have to do it.
Of course, almost ALL musicians play louder in a show than in soundcheck, so give yourself HEADROOM here. I record @ -18dBFS. If you set your condenser mics a little below this in soundcheck, -24dB or so, they will be fine. Of course you are going to need ALL of that full 24 bit resolution in this game, it can get a little hairy sometimes
I also record everything @ 48kHz - not just for the 10% increased resolution, but also for the video compatability afterwards. I dont mean JUST for the same night (video recording) … I mean anytime afterwards, which is usually quite often
Use a FAST hard drive. pref. solid state but aim for min usb3 7200rpm… it also wont save until you hit STOP. … at the end of a gig some idiot ALWAYS cuts your power somehow. Try to hit STOP on the recorder within 30 seconds of the gig (or a band set) finishing. Seriously, remember this. you can always press record again if there are encores you werent expecting. If the set gets over 50 mins, this is also useful. You also dont want to hit windows’ file size limits (4GB on FAT32) either.
Borrow DI boxes if you dont have any. Anything noisy on stage is bad on a recording, try to fix it at source first. The ‘earth lift’ button on a DI can save your gig when its on bass guitar.
If you only have a single condenser mic left over for drum overhead, (not high hat), point it between the two lowest toms (rack and floor), just over the drummers (right) shoulder, close up is always good. Add kick and snare and thats a good 3 mic drum setup for now.
Ok, you can ask if I missed something.
edit…and you NEED white electrical tape (3M is good) and a ‘fine point’ black sharpie to mark your channels on the behringer box/ stagebox AND laptop lid/desk/table. Keep them all and mark things clearly in shorthand.
When recording AND mixing you need to know where EVERYTHING is, REALLY quickly.
