Wilco live recordings for film

If anyone is recording bands live, and also filming, always feel free to write for any advice needed. After recording, editing and mixing wilco's music for their film, and a lot of other music for film, I can pass along some hints.

Cool,
I'm not the biggest Wilco fan but I really enjoyed the DVD..thought it was extremely well put together and particularly liked some of the studio footage and audio.

I picked up the Wilco DVD last week but haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Hopefully tomorrow.

The main 5 page article was in the May (I think) 2002 issue of EQ. There were some follow ups, and there's something in the upcoming MIX. The EQ article was a combo of an interview I had with Steve, and my own writing of some of the more technical processes.

That particular story was recording the band at the Fillmore in San Francisco, using 48 channels of pre-amps, DA-88's, and two Mackie 32X8 consoles for monitoring. The Soundcraft Spirit connection was the 80 songs I had to ruff mix in about 10 hours for the AVID film editing system.

I don't know if EQ has archived their past stories. Was there a particular question that I can help with?

Thanks.

Sure, what pres at the filmore dates? any particular quirks about recording at the filmore? where did you set up in relation to the stage and how were you monitoring?

This is cool...I loved Yankee Foxtrot.. as well as the DVD. Very cool peek into a creative band's struggle to realize a vision.
I am interested specificaly (as usual) in the recording of the drums.

Thanks,

Charles

Well, I tried sending responses, but it seems that my Netscape
Mac combo didn't work, so tried Internet Explorer.

As for the recording, the EQ article gets into it pretty heavily.
we used whatever mics the band had on tour (mostly Shure),
through a transformer splitter into Aphex 8 channel 1788
pre-amps. Then to the DA-88's. Analogue all the way up
to the DA-88 convertors.

Remember that this is completely live, so there's a ton of
leakage into the various drum mics, mostly the overheads. So
there's a lot of band in those overheads. And a ton of drums
in Jeff's vocal mic.

So we mixed with that all in mind. Nothing
too pristine about it, really.

Monitored through a MACKIE 32X8.
The EQ website has the archives, I believe. www.eqmag.com.
Thanks. Tim
