Anybody into Phish? Or The Grateful Dead? Or collecting live music in general?

Seems like "special interest" material. :D

Not into Phish but I've started collecting in 2008. Trey's speech about Genesis was very nice. I use Dime too.

What's a rough estimate in Gigabytes of your collection?

Right now, only a couple hundred. :-/

I'm rebuilding, after a couple years of not collecting and having hard drives die, and stuff...

I only have over 100 gigs on my drives at the moment. What's funny is that I belonged to a forum since 2000 and everyone would rave about a source that surfaced but nowhere on the forum did it mention these sites. It wasn't until I started using bit torrent that I stumbled on to them.

Around 2000 is probably when I found out about etree. It was good back then, but mostly like ftp servers... Things got a lot better in 2003-2004 when torrents became popular.

I regularly make live music recordings at gigs I attend and have uploaded several of these on the DIME tracker. At present I have about 9GB of uploaded music. Recent recordings uploaded include Bat for Lashes, Angus & Julia Stone, The Decemberists, Joanna Newsom, Belle & Sebastian, and the Temper Trap.

Currently I'm kicking myself because I missed a message in my inbox from someone who was offering to buy me tickets for the Cure at the Sydney Opera House if I'd go record it for them, and earlier a similar incident happened when Crowded House were performing in the area.

^ That's cool(I mean being able to record not missing the gig,LOL). Can I ask what your recording set-up is? I just got an Edirol R-09HR. I don't know if I will record much live stuff cause I'm in a little town. I do however love to record my keyboard tinkering and my daughter talking about her general thoughts (which are nothing general) and it is a great audio player. I thought I'd never have anything to replace my portable CD player when it finally died cause I get tired of mp3's and the Edirol has great D/A conversion. I got mics and a battery box but I'm working on modifying the box more to my liking because it seems ridiculously bulky. I hope to even transfer some old reel to reel my aunt has of my Grandma talking and singing from the 1960's. We'll see.

I wish I had the drive to tape shows. I think it would be a lot of fun. :)

I use an Edirol R-09HR hooked up to an external mic, a Sony DS70P which I run under my shirt and up into my shirt front pocket. It clips onto the top edge of my front pocket so only the mic is visble and I reinforce the pocket with cardboard to limit movement.

^great job stealthing, all the more to appreciate. Do you use a battery box or just plug in power? I got some omni's but not sure if I want to use them for my first test flight. The edirol's on board mics I am happy with anyway but can't decide and don't want to f-things up. Thanks for sharing. I figured I would turn to just audio since everyone freaks out when I have a camera on them and anyway music, conversations and story-telling I find more appealing to archive.

Lithium batteries with plug in power for the mic. I've used the internal mics on the Edirol itself before and found it disappointing because it picks up too much noise from the audience compared to a directional mic.

The samples are good with that inexpensive mic. I have a Sansa Fuze that can record but (from info from forums) leaves noise from the flawed preamp. I'm considering trying to mod it with an external mic. I think that Sony would do wonders. Thanks for your input.

@dionysian - I don't mean to hijack your thread :oops: . Please post more about about this interest. I love when people are enthusiastic about their interests because I can then learn more too.
