I wonder if we are listening to recorded music from the "sweet spot" of the concert hall, if that even exists, or if we are hearing it from multiple points after being mixed. If the recording mic is in the sweet spot then the SDA effect would be more corrective it seems. I notice sometimes that one instrument is not as involved as others. It makes me think the recording level is lower on that particular instrument making the recording not as accurate as it could be.

If they stand in front of those Marshall stacks, how do you keep those Mashalls out of the mics devoted to the vocals? You can't. How do you keep even a non-amplified Ginger Baker out of those also?

That's it, I forgot the question.
