While recording, I couldn’t really listen back to what I was recording, there were no separation between the instruments and my ears, and it was loud enough for me to not be able differentiate between the instruments and the recording. In the end I just setup the equipment relying on my knowledge of the microphones’ characteristics, my understanding of instruments, my experience recording in studios. I know that one is going to make my supervisors and lecturers at SAE Oxford and Geneva want to give me a serious ass kicking, by observing/analysing the waveform on the computer, trying to find in my head the best possible setup for each recording. - Damien 'the sound guy'
