Pro Sound Network recently published a nice overview of Audio One owner and engineer David Frangioni's VENUE based workflow as he recorded three sold-out Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band shows at Detroit’s Palace of Auburn Hills.
“When I got the call to record the live shows in Detroit, it was a great moment, because I grew up listening to Bob’s music, “says Frangioni. “Recording a Bob Seger live show is somewhat like recording a religious event, with the audience singing along to every chant and chorus. It really puts you in the moment, and I was focused on capturing that energy.”
Frangioni used an Avid Pro Tools HD2 rig interfaced to an Avid Venue D-Show console to capture up to 64 simultaneous tracks, and they recorded continuously for four hours a night, three nights in a row. How did it all go? According to Frangioni, "it all went smoothly, without incident." Like a rock, indeed.
