to kiss or not to kiss

i'm using multiple mics (mostly between twelve and eigtheen) to have options of portraying ensembles in different ways, especially when working with producers who i don't know (well), when working in surround and in high pressure situations when i cannot afford to reposition just a single mic but must deal with however mics were set up (or put into places which i did not favour but were choosen to please our friends from the video department) - also, there are more sophisticated ways to align spots these days than 40 or more years back.

cannot recommend 'kiss' under these conditions... - using more mics just to charge more is pretty poor behaviour though! (if i'm on my own, i charge less when someone prefers the 'mix' of mains only)
