i finished programming the drums for my next attempt at recording one of my songs on Saturday so yesterday i mic'd up my cab and had a go at recording without isolating the cab, it was much harder to get the mic position and eq right to get a good sound but eventually i got there.
i ended up recording 4 tracks individually and then panning them 2 each side (1 40% and 1 70%)
on the rare occasion my playing was actually tight it sounded huge but im wondering if i am wasting time recording 4 seperate tracks?
is this the generally accepted method or can i just focus on 1 really well played track and then copy it 3 times? i would have thought this would create wierd phasey sound problems?
It would just make that one take louder sir. Wouldn't add much, if anything other than volume to the guitars.
