Chapter 15. Live Engineering and Recording

You could do a book on just this one subject (and, in fact, people have!). Live engineering and recording presents a number of variables or situa-tional wildcards that are out of the realm of typical studio work. Preparation is everything in a dynamic where anything can go wrong as you are trying to capture the fleeting moments of live performance in a way that helps performers feel comfortable giving their all, while bringing the best of those moments to the audience with clarity.

Dave Morgan is one of the most respected live audio engineers in the business. Here he shares some of his insights on how to approach this gig with the right spirit and level of professionalism.
