Awesome! Regarding 'live tracking' and 'tracking separately'. If it was just a singer songwriter track, what are your thoughts on capturing a live take of both voice and guitar (for the musical feel) and then tracking voice and guitar separately whilst playing along to the live take for the vibe. After which, removing the live take for mixing?

Interesting trick with the 2 mics for the voice. :D Fab, do you try the same with condenser mics? Of course with the same pattern ...
