Alpha, I think you missed my point. The band was tracking with the amps in the same room as the drums but everyone had headphones on. Doesn't make any sense to me.

As for eating a mic it varies. I hate it when people get 4-5" or more from a mic when I'm doing live sound. I can't get enough gain out of the mic before it starts to feedback. In the studio they can whatever they want. When someone starts to eat a mic I'll roll off as much low end as I can get away with. Sometimes I'll also add a nice cut in the low mids somewhere between 125 and 350hz. Sometimes highpassing all the way up to 350 or 400hz works just as well or better. It really depends on the mic, the singers voice and the music.
