AUDIO MULTITRACK RECORDING (must be prearranged): $150

If you prefer to mix your set yourself, take the individual tracks with you (up to 24 tracks). Bring an external Mac formatted hard drive (preferably blank), or a USB Stick with approximately 6 GB of space.

3-4 High Definition Canon Vixia HF M40 stationary cameras are setup throughout the live room – 1 camera is near mix position, 1 camera stage left, 1 camera stage right, and 1 camera is setup with a fisheye lens behind the band.

HD LIVE VIDEO MIX (3 to 4 CAMERAS): $150

Similar to the audio mix, we take the camera feeds from upstairs and mix the camera cuts and fades live during your performance into one H.264 MP4 video – available immediately after your show. Bring a Mac formatted external drive (preferably blank), with at least 14 GB of space.

HD VIDEO CAMERA FEEDS & MULTI-TRACK AUDIO: $400
