- "I don't understand."
- "What, you got a Red Box?"
- "...where is your amp?"
- "I'm going to mic you anyway."
- "I UNDERSTAND mic simulations, and they don't sound good."
- "That's not how records are made, son." (He was clearly my age).
- "Why can't I mic your cab?" (BECAUSE IT'S NOT A GUITAR CAB, YOU HAVE THE MIC POINTED AT A P.A. HORN) *soundman points mic at woofer*
He ended up taking both signals (direct and Reactor cab woofer...) and doing whatever he wanted with them. I suspect he didn't use the miked woofer much, since I pointed it away from the woofer when he wasn't looking before my soundcheck.
He just wouldn't believe me that miking a cab/mic sim'ed signal would sound like shit, and I pretty much didn't make his job any harder since I just handed him a line out cable, right?
Am I wrong to believe that within the bounds of reason, his job is to fulfill such requests?
FWIW, guitarists from the other bands came up and told me I had some of the best tone of the night.
