Sure I have...plugged the all the crap in my 1402 VLZ...back in my heyday we were lucky to get mic'd at all. Why bother? That is what a sound man is for.

 

I submixed practically a whole demo I did this winter on two tracks...most of it is ok except for a cymbal or two sticking out here and there. I have to admit it was fun...I'd like to do it again sometime.

Hey Felix,

We have no designated sound man, so if I want to have a professional sound I have to submix.I've found that it is a great way to single out my drums for dynamic processing and let FOH man deal with "gain".I'm pretty picky I guess.

I submix my drums/percussion from time to time. If you've got a good sound man or someone running a separate monitor board, there's usually no need to submix. Most of the stuff I do LIVE anymore is recorded; so I'm not given an opportunity to submix my gear. Sometimes when I'm using a lot of gear, I will submix so that everything can get a mic on it; submixed down to the number of tracks I'm allowed for the recording.

Well, when our sound man took the night off the singer or guitar player would go out front and mix.

 

I was never the one to bitch about the mix being back in a corner underneath a dart board. Remember...they rest of the band are closest to the fronts. Sheesh there were usually so many opinions on the sound I didn't want to get involved unless there was a problem. The picky stuff ain't worth it IMHO...just pay me at the end of the night.
