One mic recording with San Geronimo & AEA R88

On Sunday March 20th I did something I have never done before as an engineer. I attempted to record a band with one stereo microphone to a stereo two track. This technique puts a lot of pressure on the band to not only perform well but balance themselves as you would during mixing. A lot of time is spent arranging the players in the room, adjusting their levels and getting them comfortable with their mix. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if it could be done with electric guitars and drums – but it worked great. Thank you San Geronimo for for putting up with me and bringing your A game to the session. Here’s a video I made with my iPhone.
