Looking for a few pairs of good ears ...
We did some terrific high definition video when we played at Showcase Live in Foxboro on 8-7 ... I'm doing the multitrack mix for the video (BluRay). Trying to get a good representative mix in Logic, working within the limitations of the 16 tracks we were able to record that night (toms submixed to stereo channel, three drum overheads, two kicks, two snares, bass, lead, rhythm, keys, three vocals).
I've done almost nothing in the way of processing any of the channels, aside from a little reverb on the vocals, a slight highpass on the kick drums to remove mud at the bottom end, and some slight EQ on the individual vocal mikes. No compression, no limiting, etc. It's all pretty much as it came off the stage mics.
The recording is not without flaws ... the bass signal to the board was waaaay low during the first set, so it had to be boosted significantly (but seemed to fare well despite that). And since my effects cord crapped out on me during soundcheck, I ran without the effects loop, which caused me to inadvertently push my guitar input too hot, so it's a lot crunchier than I actually like it. But beyond that, all the pieces are there.
Thoughts? More kick? Less snare? Louder vocals? More keys? Less lead guitar (perish the thought)? Hoping for a couple of the experts with really good headphones or speakers to give it a trial run before I sit down and automate all the channels to run the whole set.
