Recording a bunch of musicians in the same room is usually the quickest and most fun way to get results, but too many project-studio engineers still painstakingly isolate and/or overdub everything while tracking because of worries about spill at mixdown. In this nuts-and-bolts seminar, Sound On Sound magazine's "Session Notes" and "Mix Rescue" columnist Mike Senior will use real-world small-studio recordings to demonstrate a wide variety of methods for dealing with spill—and how it's frequently a blessing, not a curse.
