Live Recording Tips:

Anybody recording a live DVD, make sure you have a full set of back-up cymbals within reach in the case that you crack one mid song.  

During this live recording I cracked my china mid song, so thanks to proper planning and my drum tech Michael, we were able to switch out the china in a matter of seconds. I don't think anyone even noticed... I hope.

Drummer Comments:

Make sure to use lug locks on your snare!  Especially in the heat of a club, snare drums go out of tune rather quick.  Nobody likes to hear the nasty ring of an out of tune snare drum.  This latest live recording was a whole new experience for me.  It can be a little more stressful than a studio situation, since you only have one take per song.  However, there's something about capturing a live performance that cannot be replicated in the studio.

Just wondering what a "Shure Blue SM 57" mic was. I was thinking it might have been a typo since there seem to be a few, like its an AKG D112 not an Audix D112. This is the only one I can't seem to figure out for myself though. Help?
