So Im going to see the meat puppets and built to spill in northampton tomorrow at the calvin theater and i want to bootleg the show. I have a small recorder that i sneak into shows all the time but id like to get it connected straight into the soundboard for better quality.

How do i go about doing this? Should i call the place ahead of time or try to find the person behind the soundbaord there? How have others here done it?

Not sure a patch into a little cassette recorder would give you quality results. The recording equipment needs to be of fairly decent caliber.

Meh, whatever. I hesitate to endorse that for even a decent bootleg quality recording, but you know, whatever works for you.

yes, the way to get soundboard recordings is to get really cool with the soundguy before the show. Buy him some beers, give him some weed and some flattering conversation, and you have a good shot, of course, as GMKU has already suggested, the soundguy might laught a bit at the quality of yr recording device. generally speaking, people who make soundboard recordings have fairly good equipment to do such..

have you tried recording music with this before? Have you tried recording direct off your ipod/radio to see what happens? I'm guessing the specs on this are fine for spoken stuff but not for the full range of sound for music. You can get 22 hours on Long Play on the device because you are just recording vocals which doesn't need high quality.

You'll have to have the right cables, which may be a pair of XLRs wired to stereo miniplug. I don't think this device shows levels, which means you won't know if you're getting a signal or not. But you'll have to kiss ass to the sb person.

But you have the right attitude podnuh! TAPE THOSE SHOWS!!!

I, too, question the audio quality of that device.

Plus, you'll need a line->mic adapter or it will be hopelessly distorted.

When bands record their gigs from the sound board, they've usually got a remote studio recording setup somewhere on or near the location. You'd actually be better off just getting an ambient recording by holding the recorder up in the air near the stage during the gig.

not to rain on your parade, but that device isn't made for music:

Sampling Frequency SHQ 44.1kHz:128kbps (best quality available)
Overall Frequency Response SHQ 100-17000Hz (no lows/not much highs, ideal to pick up voices, bad for music)
1 hour 5 min (SHQ) (you won't get a full show with the best quality)
no line in input....
you'd be better off bribing the sound guy and asking for a dat->tape/cd recording

^ That's true! A lot less hassle, and the sound guy would know how to produce a high quality recording.

that's "even more true" if the bands involved have a favorable taping policy...

that is exactly how soundboard shows exist in their millions and millions. though the Dead were the best, they would set up output from the soundboard for the audience's recording equipment, and a bunch of spare microphones all around the venue, positive. its too bad Archive got an attitude problem and shut down the soundboard downloads..

Like Nicfit and others said... you can't plug that device onto SBD. Even if you'll find a way you will be able yo record just about 1H in stereo, 64 Kbps, which is very low for an audio recording.
I'd say just enjoy the show and hope someone with better gear will record it...
