The chances are that if you have ever done any kind of recording using a DAW then at some point in time you have probably lost something you recorded. This is not an article about backup solutions, we have plenty of content on the site already about that, and you should read them. This article is about a very neat way to have a second or what is known redundant recording solution running along side you DAW recording rig.
In recent months at Production Expert we have talked a great deal about different Audio Over Internet Protocol (AoIP) solutions and how they can be used in audio recording systems.

Back in September 2017, having just finish a CD recording project for the National Children’s Choir of Great Britain with mobile recording company, Location Recordings, I was asked if I would like to quote to record both audio and video for the National Children's Choir Of Great Britain (NCCGB) 20th Anniversary concert at the Birmingham Town Hall.

When I'm not wearing my Production Expert hat, one of the things I do in the audio word is Live Recording. My company, Location Recordings was set up purely to do this type of work. I love the challenge of having one chance to capture a moment in history. I was recently asked to both video and audio record a concert for the Nation Children's Choir of Great Britain at the Town Hall in Birmingham England. One of the biggest challenges with live recording out on location, is you are never quite sure what extra challenges are going to rear their heads during the course of the setup and recording. Yes, I agree, planning and knowing what is expected on the day is part of pre-event planning but the best-laid plans and all that, but I never like being in a position where I have to say to a client, "No I can't do that". This is how we used the amazing Ferrofish A32 Dante AD/DA Converter in recording the 20th Anniversary Concert of the Nation Children's Choir of Great Britain.
