Quote Bob Bickerton:
Most of it's been said, it would have been useful at the outset for you to have given us some idea of your role and skills.
I guess the question to ask at this point is 'How important is the recording?'
If it's critical, get someone in who knows what they're doing. The nature of your questions indicates that you do not currently have the skills to do a serious recording. Of course we would all encourage you to learn, but between now and June you need to do a lot of work and hopefully have a few dry runs at multi-tracking the band. And it's not something you'll learn by posting in a forum, though you can gain a great deal of knowledge by reading various threads and SOS articles.
As has been said working in with the FOH engineer will be critical. You need to ask them if they're willing to give you feeds off the desk, can they offer a recording service?
So you'll need to ask the FOH Engineer:
Would he/she be willing to give you feeds off the desk and if so, how many spare outputs would that be.
How would he/she be proposing to mic the band and would this proposed miking give you what you need for your recording.
What audio equipment do you have currently? Do you have an audio interface for your video editing? Do you use a DAW? Are you proposing to buy any extra gear for the recording or hire it?
I'm the FOH engineer. And is Samplitude good enough?
