  1. Fostex MR-8HD 8 track digital audio recorder (craigslist)

    I've upgraded to a Zoom R16, so I'm selling my old Fostex on Craigslist. If you are in San Diego, we can meet up, or I can ship it, if you pay for the shipping.

    The only thing in the PA was the vocals (small club). I got the vocals from the PA and mic'ed the rest myself.

    I haven't. I assume you mean while shooting. I tend to move around a lot with the camera, so I don't like having cables hooked up to it.

    I will use a similar method if putting mics on the stage won't work. However, in the smaller bars I shoot at, the only thing going into the PA is vocals, the rest is coming off the stage. And the...

    HueyNRolf makes a good point.

    You could record the audio to the computer, record audio on the camera in the built in mics, and sync them together in post.
