AUDIO & VIDEO RECORDING SERVICES:
Mississippi Studios is an acoustically designed room with non-parallel walls and excellent, professional recording rig permanently installed. Live performances at Mississippi Studios can be captured by our expert audio engineers & videographers using our in-house recording gear.
RECORDING AUDIO: For general multitracking your show, we charge $75 per evening, which includes file management & transfer to your computer. We automatically keep files for only 90 days unless we hear otherwise, so please bring a drive and do a transfer right after your show. ALL recording requests must be coordinated during show advance, no exceptions. Prior to contacting our Production Manager, please review our recording guidelines here: RECORDING GUIDELINES August 2014 – AUDIO & VIDEO
WE DO NOT ALLOW BOARD FEEDS OR TAPERS. Here’s why: 1. Board feeds are terrible by nature; the loudest instruments in the room are often not being amplified by the PA system (drums, loud amps), thus the stereo feed is all whacked out with vocals, effects, and acoustic instruments. 2. For multitrackers, we don’t want outside gear introducing buzzes or electronic noise into our system or unnecessary wear and tear on the direct out circuits/jacks (or our engineers). 3. Takes space in front of the board & looks/feels unprofessional. 4. We have figured out the most quality, reliable way to capture and multitrack shows for next-to-nothing, and we want to pass it on to artists.
VIDEO: We have three permanently installed Canon Vixia G30 HD 1080-capable, remote controlled cameras on remote controlled mounts (zoom, focus, tilt, pan are all RC) that run into an 8-camera-capable switcher in a control room upstairs. There is an audio split for assembling a broadcast mix for streaming. This system is something we are open to discuss using with qualified videographers.
We do NOT ALLOW videotaping of events (except under special circumstances) for these reasons: Video cameras take away from the ambience of the room and intimacy/now-ness of the performance and take up space. The firemarshall forbids tripods. We will occasionally allow use of handhelds/shouldermounts but ONLY if a production plan is presented at least 5 days in advance that includes: (a) plans for the audio capture, (b) post-production plans and (c) WRITTEN permission of the artists (we provide form). To avoid “imperial entanglements” we require bold and clear signage notifying patrons that they will be videotaped (we provide).
