Tour Pack

64 Track system that fits into a Minivan

LiveWire Remote Recorders has made it easy to record multiple tour dates on digital multitrack with a mininum of cost and setup time. Our “Tourpack” is a 64 track studio in six boxes, consisting of 64 high definition ATI Paragon mic preamps, with limiters on each channel, and a Mac computer with Protools backed up by a 64 channel Tascam DA-6400 Madi recorder.  The output of one recorder is fed to a 64 channel stereo mixer built into the ATI mic pre’s,  so that a reference mix can easily be routed to a CD Burner, or a broadcast mobile.

A Ward-Beck meter bridge allows the engineer to monitor the stereo output on two high quality VU meters, as well as a phase meter.

There is a SMPTE Time Code Generator, an iclock master word clock, a Brainstorm Destripalyzer SMPTE Time code distribution amp,

A Digidesign Sync I/O to sync the Protools rig to video recorders,  an SSL Delta Link MADI-HD interface, a Mamba 64×64 analog to MADI interface and a US Audio 2 x 8 audio distribution amplifier so the reference mix can be sent to four different destinations simultaneously.   (main cameras, director’s speaker, etc)

The control room output is independent of the stereo mix, so the operator can monitor and solo tracks via headphones, or via Genelec powered speakers.

The entire system is housed in six shock-mounted flight cases.

The ATI mixers feature individual phase reverse, solo, ground lift and 48v phantom power switches. For a complete online manual, visit www.8MX2.com

The whole system only draws 15 amps, and power can be provided via 20 amp Twist-lok or standard U-Ground connectors.

For an extra charge, we can also provide a 64 channel mic splitter and snake, a pair of powered Genelec speakers, audience mics, and intercom system or whatever else you feel will help your production.

Since the equipment only takes up an area the size of a banquet table, it can be placed next to the FOH or monitor console, or in a room backstage.
