I recorded about 4 hours of iFrame format video along with the Tracktion 4 audio recording.
The camcorder used 34gig of the 64gig SDXC card installed.
When I have mixed down the 15 track Tracktion audio, I will import the whole session into iMovie, so that I can align it with the camcorder audio track, before cutting out all of the stuff between good takes.
It's probably going to take some time, but it will keep me busy.
I do have blackout covers for the rear of the stands and racks, but I didn't put them on as there is always beer spillage on the floor at these charity events and it would have soaked up the cloth.
The adjustable gantry pole on the additional 4' stand was perfect for rigging the camcorder (out of shot above the iMac). With the stability automation turned on, the video was rock steady in spite of the pole shaking slightly with the dancing.
I am providing and engineering my 4k FOH sound rig at The Tropic at Ruislip on Sunday 2nd, March, for a charity gig organized by Leigh Heggarty and Pete Sargeant.
The line-up is The Band Of Sceptics and The Flying Squad, with all of the proceeds going to The Bath Hospice, as we are all working for free.
Leigh has asked me to record the gig, so this will be my first location based recording using the new 27" iMac and Tracktion 4.
I will also rig the new camcorder onto an additional DJ stand to be used for the iMac and twin CD player (for interval music), to capture a basic video. The camcorder has a very good zoom and wide angle lens. I may also be able to use another camcorder for close-ups.
This will be another first. Using 1x6' and 1x4' DJ stands bolted together in parallel with Unistrut parts, for the desk and outboard racks and now another 4' DJ stand bolted at 90 degrees on the end.
I will post some pics.
It will be a great night, with both bands showing their respects for the late GYPIE MAYO (Yardbirds, Dr Feelgood, Band Of Sceptics)
