In a larger session that would seem like a LOT of switching from right to left brain. (beginning engineer/producer question, as you can probably tell).
It really depends on how technical the producers background is, and how much they want to tune into the engineering aspect. I know some producers who pay a lot of attention to what's going on, and others who don't care (or have a clue)...they just want it to sound good.
