Live Recording and Multi Tracking on tour creates valuable content for clients. Many of them released DVD’s in the past, based heavily on material recorded live from the FOH System.
Not only the artists did capture their best performances, they saved as well money doing it.

What it else Live Recording can do?
Touring with daily live recording / multi tracking enables to offer also a stereo 2-track of the last show along with audience microphones as something as “ this is how the show was last night ” to give it to the band for creative work, or to the press, to the record company, or just to public a song in social media.
Archiving the music! Especially for older artists who have been on stage for many years, the day comes when they will no longer tour. Therefore, professionally made live recordings become very valuable!
Even the preparation time is very important nowadays. On the rehearsal days, You can sit down with the artist and listen to the mixes, and perfect them. Spend some quality time with the artist working together on that thing that’s really bugging them !
Make the most of that limited rehearsal time. The recording / playback / virtual soundcheck becomes a highly musical tool.
