There are also USB Flash drive duplicators out there, Though they may be a bit more expensive than a CD I would think that they could be pumped out a lot faster, and there is kind of a cool factor. you could probably get a bunch of 1GB flash drives made for you with a logo on them. and when the customer buys it they can load it on to their computer and then wipe out the flash drive and use it for whatever they wantI would monitor the mix as it is going out, and try to have your mix down pretty much done right out of the box, witch probably would not be all that hard to do with a post fader aux send to the recording out. Once the mix sounds good, it will follow along with your FOH mix.then the only question becomes how to do the track separations as quickly as possible and get the flash drives pumped out.
Hey all,I have an artist that wants to make an audio copy of their show available for sale either directly after the performance or the following day. The most obvious solution would be to record straight to disk and then deliver the disk to the merch booth where it would be burned to cd-r's.What are some other options? Especially in the UK... I will be recording via a Venue Profile to Pro Tools HD and can do a quick mix within an hour after the show on the bus. Is there an online service that hosts uploads? If so, what's the best way to get reliable internet service in the UK that will allow enough upload?
Your artist's management will need to check with the venues. Many have labor contracts that require extra pay, either as a bonus or additional hourly wages, when the venue is used for "commercial use." The contracts tend to define commercial use as use in movie, video or audio production/recording that will be sold for a fee additional to the purchase of the admission ticket. Think of it as "any recording or filming that will be sold; or used outside the venue in which the show takes place."This has stopped many artists from doing this in the USA. The promoter has to pay the labor bill, but the artist and associated production company get "free" labor."Not sure how things are in the UK or how the unions there negotiate... but it's something to consider. It would be awkward to take fan orders and then have to refund the $$$.
Many of the big name jambands do this through divisions of nugs.net If you would like me to put you in touch with someone who works there feel free to PM me.Frost
Awesome!! Great info everyone... I did look at one of those aleratec units today online, not a bad little deal. As far as venue licensing of the music goes, I will have management look into that. In the UK, we travel with our Live Nation Rep, so I imagine he'll take care of all that as well.Chris Buford - Does much of your post show process involve bouncing down? I thought this took a lot of time, our show will come close to 3 hours.

There is no bouncing down to do. ....All I do post show is divide up the final stereo track, export as WAV files ...
