Do you ever play a "guess the signal chain it was recorded with" game while mixing?

Funny you should ask. A couple months ago, I was mixing a record for Dashboard Confessional that Daniel Lanois produced. On one particular song I was just doing a MAI(stands for match and improve, pronounced "may I" clever aren't I?, please.) and I couldn't get the vocal matched. So after a bit of listening I heard the sound of the 1176 . I put it in the chain and voila. I called his engineer, Adam, and he confirmed that it was mixed with an 1176 with the same settings I had. That's about it for that kind of stuff. I've been away from recording for so long that I wouldn't have a clue what's being used anymore.

Hay Jules? how'd you know my nephew was a Monkey? That was a family secret for years....oh yah, that's right, you saw me in the Folds video.
