Question for Vance Powell--Vocal Mix for the Band in a Live Room

Hi Vance, and thank you for taking the time to share your experience.

I really love your philosophy of live recording in the studio. Makes me think of the Wrecking Crew, and how Carol Kaye said something was lost once people starting recording their parts remotely, in separate studios on separate days and never together as a unit.

Here's my question--if you have the band in one room and you're tracking without headphones, how do you make sure that everyone can hear the vocalist? Seems like running the vocals through monitors into the live room would create bleed that's impossible to work with come mix time.

Thanks, Vance!
