I did some heavy studio reconfiguring to make my guitars more readily available and any outboard gear pre-wired in a patch bay to hopefully encourage more live instrumental work. The acoustic guitar was double mic'ed with 2 mxl 603s aimed at the 14th fret on the neck and the bridge (I initially stereo mic'ed with 2 AKG c414s, but it ended up sounding better with my super crappy small diaphram mics I got back in like 2004ish. Go figure). Auxilliary percussion was recorded with a single sm57. The ukulele was recorded with a single AKG c414. The electric guitar and bass were recorded from a direct line out from my amp. It sounds like there may be some phasing issues in the acoustic guitar and the bass feels a bit pinched to me, so some more experiments will have to performed, but I'm excited to see how this new setup affects my workflow.
