My band was taped by the local newspapers Internet department for their local music website. They came in with a couple cameras, one fixed and one handheld. I multi tracked the show using our StudioLive and Capture. I took it home and remixed it, then delivered wave files to them on a disc which they synced up to their video in editing.

It turned out considerably better than it would have with the limited audio capabilities they brought with them considering the very live acoustics of the room. What I did was totally independent from what they did and there was no problem marrying the audio to the video after the fact.

If you can go all out and hire a professional production company, they can come in with multiple cameras and link everything up with timecode or another option is to use headphones and output a dedicated mix to the video guys from your SL if you can mix it on the fly....

Hope this gives you a few ideas...

I've done video this way before and it turned out awesome. My friends and I put together a Foo Fighters tribute show this last spring to celebrate their new album. Sound was run from the Studiolive and recorded directly into Logic Pro 9. Mixdown was done in Logic. We had one stationary camera and one handheld in the crowd. I edited the video as well using Final Cut. Here is one of the songs from that show - . I'm the guy playing the Explorer.
16.4.2 » Aux Stereo Inputs A and B in VSL » Go to message
Am I missing something or are the stereo Aux A and B inputs on the 16.4.2 not represented within VSL? I can see their fat channel settings once I hit the select button if I'm in the Fat Channel viewing mode in VSL, but there are no other GUI elements in the main VSL mixer to represent these inputs. I would think that since the pot for these inputs is simply a digital send level, you could adjust it via VSL.

That's a classic symptom of an internal grounding problem. You stopped the bleeding temporarily, but the patient still needs surgery. The trick is to figure out which one is the patient, the speaker or the StudioLive. Is the speaker sending hash back to the mixer along the ground path, which is causing the mixer to send it right back out to the speaker? Or is the mixer at fault and is sending hash to the speaker through the ground path?

This is a good time to remind y'all of the fabulous June 1995 Journal of the AES with everything you need to know about grounding and shielding. It's $15 for non-members, $10 for members, and it's an entire issue devoted to the subject, most of it written in plain language, not mathematical symbols and formulas.


I've since upgraded those speakers to JBL LSR2328Ps, but have been using the same lifted XLR cables. I'll try it with different cables tonight and see if it still does it.

I had a very strange issue that was similar to this. Grounding issues are weird sometimes.

I have an 21.5" iMac setup on my desk with the StudioLive 16.4.2 right next to it, and at the time, Yamaha HS50M monitors on the ends of the desk.

I was getting some crazy sounding low level noise coming through the speakers that would coincide with the iMac's GPU usage. The best way I could describe it was digital static whenever the iMac did something video related like scroll a website, play a video, etc. The noise was always there a little bit, but could easily be heard when the GPU kicked in.

I tried everything I could think of to get rid of the problem. New cables on everything, different firewire cables, different power conditioners, different outlets on different breakers, ground lifts, etc.

Then a friend suggested I lift the ground on my XLR cables that were going from the main outputs on the SL, to my monitors. I did it the old fashioned way, pulled the covers back and snipped the ground/shield. BAM. Fixed. No noise, completely silent.

Thanks guys. Yes, that's a TRUE Systems P-Solo mic pre. Great transparent pre.

The walls have Auralex foam behind and to the sides. The breaker box for the house is on that back wall, that's why there is a section on the right side that was cut weird.
