Hierarchy of Needs
 
Hi Vance,

Thanks for taking some time to answer these questions. If you were thrown into an empty church and tasked to make a record, what are the recording and mixing tools that you would absolutely require to make a recording of the highest caliber? Let's assume we have a decent sound from the room and a well-rehearsed band, as those are the fundamentals for a great record. Thank you again!

Hi Vance,

Thanks for taking the time to answer all these questions. Do you have "go to" uses for each of these mics, or are they just the ones you reach for most often?
