Hello! I've been in and out of the forums the past two/three years trying to figure some stuff out. So far, we are back to square one. First, let me give you all the setting. We are a church of about 350 and have pretty rocking music and dynamic services. It is our goal to get setup for TV, web streaming, CD production, etc. At this time our FoH is working great. Everything is in order. We run an Yamaha 01v with all 32 channels in operation - 16 on board and 16 coming in from two 8-channel Presonus pre-amps. Our digital outs are in use by a personal monitoring system. Our recording worries started when we purchased an Alesis HD24. We thought we'd be able to link it up and get 24 channels direct out from the digital outs on the 01v, but did not think about our monitoring system. So, that limited us to 16 channels direct out. In addition, we do not want to have to mess with pulling the data off of the hard drive every service to produce CDs or to sync it with the video production. So, we are taking a look from the beginning and would like some advice. Our major goals are producing near CD quality recordings on the fly, spitting out the same mix and syncing with video for live streaming/recording, and using the same mix for TV. Our thoughts were to split off our channels to 32 going to FoH and a split of 32 going to a recording system. So, FoH is seperate from recording. Anyways, please let me know your thoughts, equipment, etc. We have a low budget, but at this point are open to expanding it if it will prepare us for TV and better recordings. Right now, we are 2-tracking it all out to a CD recorder. This works to some extent, but we are having problems with headroom, eq, and such on the 2-track layer on the 01v. It doesn't provide a lot of flexibility. We'd like to keep FoH and recording separate if possible. Let me know what you all think! Thanks!
