I want to buy an external LED light like this (LINK (external link)) and mount it with the side mount. Problem is, it looks like they all remove the ability to use a tripod. Any ideas?

Well, the light has a shoe mount as well, so you needn't use their bracket to side mount it; just locate another style of bracket that will allow you to attach it some other way. For instance, I use RRS L brackets on my gear; their WPF-QR (external link) off-camera flash bracket folds up compactly and attaches to either slide of the L bracket while I have the camera attached to the ball head by the other. Mind you, that's in a totally different price range than you may be looking; I only offer it as an example of what's out there. Alternatively, you could just get a QR plate/clamp of your own style and attach them to a replacement camera mounting screw on the bracket (there are many solid aluminum mounting screws that offer 1/4"-20 threaded screw and socket) out there.

I have three things I want mounted to the camera at once and still be able to use a tripod. Flash on the hot shoe, LED light, and sound recorder. I just cant seem to figure out how to make this work.

How about superclamping them with the arms:

Or, use this 4-head accessory arm:

I made this little deal for shooting macro and whatever else. The aluminium plate is from a drywall square they sell at Lowes for twenty bucks. All you need do is drill and tap quarter inch twenty holes in the proper spots, and you will be good to go.
