The short answer is, we don’t. Just as it was in the 1950s, bands need to perform each song, live, in the same room. This is where is becomes very important that the band can “self mix” to an extent. In other words, the louder instruments need to be played quite enough so that everyone can hear each other. IMPORTANT: Before recording in this way, rehearse without a PA system. If you cannot hear the singer well enough, you need to make some changes. We can offer advice on this before you book.
