There are several ways to get a thicker sound. I was hoping to discus one that I heard about recently. So there is double tracking: recording the same part with multiple takes possibly changing guitars, amps, EQ. And there are multiple microphone techniques: some stereo: XY, AB, MS. Some mainly to add depth: LDC and SDC pair, near and room microphones, microphones on different parts of the instrument etc. Of interest to me is one I heard recently. The suggestion was to record the same source onto multiple tracks. One microphone, one take, one A to D converter being recorded onto multiple tracks on the hard drive. I'm not saying I think this is a good idea, but wondering what others think of it.
