I have to agree with DirkB on the fact that positionning the individual mics where they sound the best + use the IBP has its advantages compared to moving mics. Especially when one is working alone (like me) in the studio!

William, one question I have to ask you is about the placement of the ambiance and OH mics. I see lots of fellow engineers placing the OH and Amb mics very distant from each others. I always find the result to sound phasy and unrealistic (washed out cymbals, unstable stereo image), so I always mics my amb (schoeps) and OH either in XY or ORTF. When placing those mics, do you take time to experiment with different options or do you always proceed with the same "pattern"?
