Hi all, A question derived from the results of my last post. I had last set off to mix a show in a theater and do a multi track recording simultaneously. So I got a DI source recording track from the instrumental acoustic guitar performer as well as an XY SM81 stereo source from the FOH position. Ok so I also got the sbd outs (post Drawmer comp./mackie/onyx). Its a total of 6 tracks, 1vocal mic, 1 di, 2 main mix, 2 stereo mic at FOH. My question is regarding the delay time between the DI feed and the FOH mics as how it relates to mixing for a CD. I had first thought If I account for the speed of sound and then compare to distance of my board from the stage and set that same time in my DAW delay it would equal out. Hmm, Perhaps I'm doing it wrong. Anyohne else ever dealt with this? Although mixed straight together and the XY mics set much lower than the main source the recording seems to have a nice natural delay and reverb. How do I know if this mix is deep in phase cancellation?
