coyote Posted August 16, 2004 Share Posted August 16, 2004 Hi all, I'm taking a mix straight off a live board to two-track hifi VHS tape. All vox & instruments go either dirct into the board or are miced. The sound in the room is very lively and full. Yet the sound on tape, using identical EQ and essentially the same comparative levels, sounds flat! It's clear enough and each instrument can be heard, but all the instruments & vox sound distant and small. Even keys which go direct into the board don't have that presence you get in the room.... I've beeen listening to live recordings as well as live TV events such as sports - the mix in those instances has much more immediacy than what I'm getting. How do I get that on a live mixdown to two-track? I used to think I was Libertarian. Until I saw their platform; now I know I'm no more Libertarian than I am RepubliCrat or neoCON or Liberal or Socialist. This ain't no track meet; this is football.
