The short answer is to run a new cable back to the panel. Too many variables would enter the picture as to how to do that.

How much power do you need ?
The power amps will probably be the biggest drawer,
How many amps ?
How much power do the amps put out ?

You will have to run a new circuit back to your panel,
one or two depends on your loads.

As for exacilty how ?
We would need more details on your building layout.

The amps would be his biggest draw dmx. The board or desk would be the next. Really need list of equipment and power ratings off of the plates, along with amp of the circuits that they have all of this plugged into.

With today's computers, you do not even need amps for recording, since everything would mix through the computer. Even then, you would only need a max of 2 20 amp circuits for everything.

Way too vague of a question but to be overkill I'd run a 12/3 back to your panel and run a multiwire branch circuit. I'm guessing you'd have all the power you need
