The band was tracked with a full line of Lauten Audio (Atlantis, Clarion) and Blue (Mouse, Dragonflies, Stage 2 Bottle) microphones, UAD Apollo preamps and plugins, Manley (TNT Cool & Hot Pre, Dual Mono Pre) preamps, Dangerous Bax Eq, monitored through a Dangerous D-box and a pair of Focal Twins 6 and CMS Sub speakers.

Yes i agree with that, when you find god musicians with good instruments, amp etc. you must find perfect position for the mic!!!

The guitar/band recording video imbedded the fact that mic placement is everything in the beginning of the recording set up.
