I get more proactive as the record progresses. During basics I try to get a good sound that vibes with the band and the sources that I'm given. I swap mics, tune drums, and even adjust amps to get a cohesive sound.

I also make notes for possible overdubs. One thing I like to do is use the bands instruments and amps for the basics and use my stuff for overdubs. I love to set up four or five amps and have a bunch of guitars around. I also have four or five mics at the ready.

During mix down it's almost all me. I usually get the mix 90% there and then start taking directions from the peanut gallery.
