That was a really cool video. Seems like it works best to either go minimalist, or go the other extreme and isolate everything. Similar to our conversations on monitoring and PA.
Curious about a few other things regarding effects and other things around the era. They mentioned the tape based delay/slapback ans well as plate and spring reverbs. I thought I also read that they used to put a speaker and microphone into a large room for reverb and basically the speaker level would be your send and the mic was your return. Is that true? Was it common? I think I remember that from the Beatles (which would have been 60s) but don't know if that was something unique to them or common practice for the time.
Also curious when he was talking about getting it in one take - I know at least eventually with tape they did splices and overdubs. Did they do that all the way back to the beginning of tape based recording or did that come later?
Finally, he talked about a mastering EQ as opposed to the others he'd put in the channels. In the case of a single mic....1 track tape I guess...would they basically just play that back through whatever EQ and compression and record to another reel for the "mastered" version?
