Recording a live band

Ive been asked to record my friends band. Ive never done anything like this before and am thinking I would just run through an alternate output from the board into my interface into Logic Pro. Will this work?

Re: Recording a live band

Depends on the live setup really. For example, if the drum kit is only partially mic'ed up, or not at all, then that's not going to work well on your recording. But in theory, yes you can take an output from the desk, and record a stereo track of the performance.

EDIT: I'm assuming here (because you referred to the board) that you mean recording a live gig. If you mean a live performance in the studio though, then read p_s_f's post below.

Re: Recording a live band

1.) Track drums in another room than the guitars, get a good drum take. Whatever the drummer needs to hear to keep time.

2.) Record the rest of the instruments/vocals

3.) Have fun

Seriously, recording a band with Logic is a breeze.

It helps to spend the time micing the drums properly. If you can mic all the drums, do it. Otherwise you could get some good demo sounding drums with a decent pair of condenser microphones for overheads, a mic on the snare, and a mic on the kick.

Yes i mean live performance thanks a lot! The place is a fine fine fine establishment with a great set up. Surely the drum set up will be nothing less than stellar.
