Title: live recording with sc48 not using Pro tools LE, is it possible?
Post by: Airton Pereira on February 22, 2011, 09:29:43 pm
Hi,

I will work on Rio de Janeiroīs Carnaval with a huge samba group containing 42 inputs. Iīll do monitors and the foh enginner asked for a Venue SC48 for him, so I thought of getting one too for easy things up and because of the small footprint. But I would be very happy to record the shows, because itīs a 3-day performance, and I could listen to the first one and make corrections to the following ones. With the limitations of PT LE (18 tracks only), I keep thinking, can I record all these inputs with the SC48? Perhaps a madi card or something?

You can record on any ASIO DAW, as long as PT is installed, as the drivers come with the PT installation. And I am not aware of any stand alone drivers.

SC48 does not support the MADI cards as far as i know, you will need the profile or D-show for this.

the 18 track limitation stays with SC48 irrespective of the recording software, as it is a FW bus and driver issue.
