We only ever did the moving away from the mic thing , for a rock approach. For all the pop BV's that Mutt would do on his own , would be just stacked up 20 or so tracks per harmony, sometimes more , sometimes less. We would bounce them into 4 tracks per harmony and as for panning , we'd pan them pretty much wide all the time. Having used a ridiculous amount of eq to get the right sound. A lot of level riding is also used as is editing all the "S's" and hard consonants to line up to stop the flamming.
THANKS MIKE!

I'm really looking forward to trying this.

I figure the level riding to tame the S's, I can do in the PT edit window.

The panning...I'm already a slut for wide panning backing vox, as well as finding creative ratios. Like panning one set of harmonies 90%, another 70%, and so forth - or even flipping the sides, like having the higher register wider on the left and the lower register wider on the other right..

As for the EQing, with backing vox, I find myself cutting lows. A LOT. Same with you guys?
