Live Sound Specialists


David Powles Specialist Audio offers high-quality, digital live recording at concerts in conjunction with PA Hire services. One of the many advantages of using a fully digital mixing system is the ability to combine professional quality multi-track recording with a live mix, providing a lasting memory of a great gig.


Making a live recording of a performance can be an exciting and memorable way of capturing an atist's abilities, or the atmosphere of a complete festival, as well as providing a very marketable product. However, the build-up and planning or traditional recording methods can be very stressful, which. added to the unusual technical demands and extra-long sound-checks, can easily have a negative effect on the overall performance and hinder the end result.


By using the Roland R-1000, a 48 Track Hard Disc Recorder in conunction with a Roland Digital Mixer and studio quality microphones, unpleasant time-wasting can be avoided, allowing artiststo be hardly aware of the recording and able to perform with minimum hindrance and to the best of their abilities.
