To be serious here, the reason you record using a mixer's pre-fader
outputs is because it's highly unlikely that you want the settings for
the house mix used for the recording.  The mix and EQ for the house 
during a live show is very different than what you'd want for a live
recording.  I don't see this being very useful.
