So far, I’ve made two kinds of live videos. Full productions, with 3 cameras, audio recorded in multi-track from the soundboard, then mixed and mastered. That is time consuming and runs about 20 man hours for a 30-minute show, but the quality is great. The other way is quick and dirty, one camera with audio on the camera. The quality of that is, well, not great.
I’m trying a third way. One camera, but audio is a stereo mic in the audience. I bought a Shure MV88 stereo mic. It records to an iPhone via the Lightning connector in 24/48. I used it this past Saturday to record Roman Watchdogs and M.I.T. at The Pour House in Oceanside, CA.
I’m very happy with the result. I’m not sure what the venue’s sound guy was thinking with all the reverb, but the MV88 did it’s job very well.
