The band were already excited to be part of that creative process, so that helped. Including them in said process and explaining the process to them kept them very engaged, as they were curious about the recording techniques we were implementing as well. We were doing a live recording, so in capturing the levels in terms of mic'ing and position, we were having to keep that all in mind as well as overall level as it was coming in to tape. I consulted with my engineer and we came up with a strategy for the recording. That strategy consisted of Mic Pre choices, mic choices, mic placement choices, and using tape emulation. That gave us a road map to the mix.
