“When you’re dealing with a live-off-the-floor situation you have to make sure the magic comes through the glass into your monitors. If the feel is not there in the balancing of what you are doing in the control room, what I do is, go out to the floor to hear the live balance of the instruments. If it is correct and feels good on the floor I will rethink my miking, if not, I will rethink the set-up. This is done to achieve the best feel for the musicians on the floor. This in turn will give me the best reproduction of the recording. The musicians have to be comfortable in the studio, no matter what.”
