Hard disk recorder with multiple outputs for Live Performanc

Discussion in 'Pro Audio Equipment' started by TheSwinginChicken, Jan 19, 2009.

  1. Hi All,

    I am currently playing with a band where we are using backing tracks live.

    We have been using a Fostex D-90 Hard Disk Recording System but it is old and is starting to act up.

    We are looking for HD based recorder that can play back 4 channels live.
    1 - Click track for drummer
    2+3 - Stereo pair for loops/backing track/synths etc.
    4 - Subs and misc (if needed)

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Any information at all would be greatly appreciated.

    The SwinginChicken

    The Alesis HD24 is a good box. It's 24 tracks which may be overkill. Some have reported they don't handle vibration very well. I've never had any problems with my 2. I wouldn't place them close to a sub.

    You could multitrack your performances with the extra tracks if you wanted to.

    Don't want to chase you away, but I think you need to look for keyboard forum or a DJ forum. The primary topics around here are are getting sounds onto the disk. Your primary concern is getting them off in real time.
  4. Thanks to both of you for the information.

    AudioGeezer - We were hoping to get something a bit more compact and cheaper than the HD24. It is also a bit overkill for what we need at the moment but thanks for the suggestion.

    BobRogers - Thanks, I'll try posting the question on a few DJ forums.

    If you have any other suggestions then let me know.
