We were thrilled to be asked to make this Location Recording for the BBC in the venue Rich Mix, just near Shoreditch in East London. We paid a visit to the venue ahead of the event to look at the set-up, and were very happy to find a state-of-the-art console with digital multicore running back from the stage.
An eight channel recording was required, which would be a mixture of the on-stage mics, two ambient audience mics and a feed from the DJ who would perform during breaks in the show. We worked very closely with the in-house engineer, taking separate feeds from each channel of the mixing desk. We also set up a separate stereo recording that came straight from the front of house mix.
The show was great fun to watch and record, and the quality of the recordings turned out to be first class. A big thank you to the Rich Mix team for being so accommodating.
