Here's the deal. I'm looking for advice on what would be the best live setup sound- wise for my band. We're a combo of live instruments and sequenced tracks.
We have live guitar, bass, keyboard, and congas....and a good amount of sequenced tracks. What's the ideal live setup for this sort of arragement?
Should I run Pro Tools off a laptop with an M Box? Whatever's gonna get the clearest sound off my sequenced tracks is what I need.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Sorry, I've got no particular ideas about setups, I just hope someone else does.

I would like you to feel welcome though, astronaut a gogo

I've been listening quite a lot lately to composings made by Ton Bruynel, who, I think, excels in combining life and prerecoreded material ... so er ... or maybe .. I like that "genre" .. I guess.

Any links for us to hear what you are doing ?

Jan.

My best advice is start off with what you have and then make corrections targeted at what you need. Nobody can tell you what's going to work for your music, your budget, and your skill level.

If you wait for the ideal solution then you will wait forever. The best thing is to just start doing it.

many do this: record all their prerecorded tracks mono on one channel of a stereo recording (on CD) with the other channel used for a click track sent to the drummer. all you need to carry around is a portable CD player and a mixer with an aux send. not the best solution but easy to accomplish and efficent until you get stardom status Cool
