Hey Noize, I saw a mtv show some time ago, where the Mana guys would visit a fan at their house. Take all their gear and play for them, with no mics no nothing. Like a garage show. No mix, the recording came from the camera´s mic probably, and guess what.. it sounded just like him. I personaly don´t think there is any trickery as to his sound. Basic mic placement and his drumming and you are there. I know this was not the answer you were looking for ,but it´s the truth.

Thanks guys, I believe it was Facone and I was hoping to get answers involving comp's, eq's, limiters, gates, buss assignments and settings. So please if there is any other source out there.........
