Here for the gear

Thanks Studer for all of these really helpful suggestions! I will have a good look at the article you've linked there. Re: use of spot mics, I would normally try to do the bulk of the work with the main pair/outriggers, but in a session environment (as opposed to a concert) it seems churlish to deprive myself of the opportunity to sort balance/focus problems after the fact, particularly if there's not a great deal of time to experiment with main pair placement. So far I haven't regretted putting up most of the mics I did, at least for certain points in the music (even if they're not being used all of the time), especially the choir section and organ mics. The brass and percussion spots are less crucial given their greater proximity to the main array.
