Welcome to the forum!

I hope you enjoy the Zoom Q8 HD video recorder with four audio tracks. You mentioned you want to record live events. What kind of live events, rehearsals, concert settings, club performances, etc.? Are you one of the musicians? Do you run the sound gear?

Hi Jim Thanks for the reply. I am one of the musicians in the band, and I wanted to record our live events at music venues.
I did try to record a rehearsal last week to get familiar with the Zoom Q8, but the audio was so broken up and all you heard was guitar and drums.
I noticed the settings were on a lower audio setting, so bumped it up to a higher setting. Or maybe the volume was too high on the camera?

No I do not run the sound gear

I looked at the website and though it has a 2013 copyright there is not a lot of information there. That's okay though. My website remains unfinished too.

I was hoping the website would have some photos or something to give us an idea of the composition of your group, the sound equipment you use and how we can help you meet your goal.

Several forum members video music events, some they are in the audience while others they are the group. I'm not one of them so my suggestions shouldn't carry too much weight.

Think about most of the cell phone videos you see posted to YouTube. Many have terrible sound, the entertainers are so far away they look like dots or people are walking in front of the camera blocking the view. Those are all the kind of things you want to avoid.

The ideal is to record the audio straight from the sound system if all the music is through the sound system. It will take a LOT of experimentation if an instrument like the drums is not part of the sound system

Video should be high, above the crowd and as close as you can get the camera and still get all of the stage area.
