    Mic Bleeding
    Hi All- In my continuing quest to have my tracks sound like they were recorded on my grandfather's 8-track and then chewed on by his cat, I'm looking into getting artificial microphone bleeding in my tracks. Much of the punk music I listen to is recorded live with several different microphones; and the drum mics will sometimes pick up the guitar and this gives the tracks a unique gritty quality. I'm trying to find a good example, and the best I can find so far is a track called 'You Ain't Good' by the Cheater Slicks. If you listen to it in Spotify you should hear it, alot of their stuff on 'Don't Like You' tends to have it.

    Hi Roy, You could turn your monitors on while recording through a mic... so that it'll pick up background noise... or even better, solo say the guitar, turn your monitors up, use the mic to record background noise only (including your monitors output/recorded guitar). Now with a bit of EQ'ing and lowering the level you could make it sound pretty authentic. :) Rounik
