Phase, alignment and genral mix tightness....

Russel,

Many thanks for opening up your years of experience with us all. I have learnt an immense amount from the threads already so thanks.

In the search for the best mixes possible I've been experimenting with digital recordings by zooming right in and aligning say snare and overheads so that the snare and O/H transients line up. This is making the mix tighter and cleaner but I have feeling it is losing some character.

Do or have you ever tried anything like this or how do you approach this when on tape?

Is it all down to mic placement at tracking?, and being extremely thorough.

I just picked up a MTR90 you see, and will be starting to do tape only mixes.

Many thanks,
tko.
