In a great room, you typically want to highlight the interactions the instruments have with the space, and obtain just enough of the required closer-focus with the spots.

In the current scenario, you want to minimize room pickup, but still keep a good relationship of one instrument to its neighbour, as well as capturing a good rounded sense of the instrument itself (without an overly zoomed-in aspect)

So it's still a mic selection and placement balancing act, and still relies on careful listening to optimize the between-instrument relationships... and the good aspects of the (more limited) capture of the space around them.

I don't think you can achieve the same outcome with reverbs, eq-ing and delays alone, after the capture is completed
