Looking for a recorder to bootleg a show!
Hey everyone. I am looking for something to bootleg a show. i have looked at minidisc and dat. waht do you guys suggest. does anyone have a recorder they are looking to sell? all help would be appreciated. thanks!
are you talking about capture cards?
I am looking for audio recorders to capture audio from a portable system I.E. minidisc recorder... i want to record my firends band augustana's concert from the crowd.
At a dylan forum I go to they use to have a thread about it but couldnt locate it for ya.
what kind of access do you have? Can you plug into the soundboard, or are you putting up mics?
i was going to use stealth mics. i dont have access to the board, otherwise iw ould just used my computer. i need a bootleg from the crowd.
I would say get a DAT recorder. You have to hold MD completely still while recording, otherwise you get errors. Sony TCD D7, D8, and D3 are good. I have a D3. D7 and D8 are smaller. You can only get portable DAT drives secondhand.
how much are those going for? do you know wehre to get them and what kind of mic should i look into?
What concert are you going to bootleg?
screw concerts, bootleg movies from theater.
Soundsboard bootlegs are the only one's worth it in my eyes, through all the dylan bootlegging theres only a few actually good fan recordings. One being a concert I was at )
it the goo goo dolls with augustana. I dont have access to the board, or i would go that route. i just want a decent in crowd recording. which i know you can get.
Check out this site http//sonicstudios.com/tips.htm. They have a lot of info on taping and the different kinds of mics. I got my DAT recorder on eBay for about $70. The better, smaller ones are going to be more. Here is a good listing of ones that are good for this http//search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&satitle=sony+tcd. Read up on the different models, and see what you like and what fits your needs. Make sure they work. As far as a mic, if you want stealth, your selection goes down, but there are definitely high quality stealth mics available. Soundboard patches are nearly always better, but I have heard some stellar audience recordings that could be passed as soundboards. Another big thing is batteries. Make sure you ahve enough and that they are fresh. Here are some other useful pages http//www.sonicstudios.com/tapertip.htm, http//www.rockpark.com/d7/, http//www.beastiemania.com/qa/liverec.php.
