Seriously...If there is no compression then there is something seriously wrong, because your dynamic range is getting squashed to hell and something is bringing out the "spit" and creating an envelope. You have to have some sort of heavy compression going on. That's just not how uncompressed dynamic sources sound at all.
Why? It just shows the nice round sound of the Elixirs on the backups. NO compression on backups on either. Mic position was around 3 inches.
