I'm sure this question has been asked; if you can just point me in the right direction, I'll dig for my info:

I will be recoring a live band performance that will then be re-mixed in the studio. What's the best way (is it even possible?) to record everything at optimum levels without affecting the house mix?

Thanks!

I suggest setting all your gains as high as you can without clipping or feedback. Then do all your processing for FOH. That way you should get good volume to the recording for each channel. That should also be good for FOH.
