I know of at least one guy in


I know of at least one guy in Austin, TX, who mixes the PA in some of the clubs. He runs a CD recorder of the show and sells CD's to the bands after their set. My friend, Emory, got the bright idea of doing the same with a video camera and a DVD recorder. He took an audio feed from the PA guy, locked down the camera, and let the DVD recorder run. Of course, the viewer got bored really quickly with such a static shot. The bands and the club owner didn't want lighting bright enough for a good video image, etc, etc.     The complexity of multiple cameras, multiple mics, etc grows at a geometric rate, not a linear rate with each added device.    Rule of thumb: if it was easy, it would have been done already.
