Re: Handheld that sounds like like an LDC

Usually the large mic is several inches from singer's mouth, while hand held is close. Either way, KMS 105 or VX10 should do. Or 58, depending.

Re: recreating demoes and "demo-itis"

Demos have stuff that finished products lack. And vice versa.

Re: How many guitar amps?

I can seriously say that "no more than one amp" is ever needed. In fact, "no amp" is needed. Found this out when needing to record quietly, and used a fuzz pedal. Even today when listening back ..the pedal sounds like an amp. Fools me every time.

Re: Two parter: Getting mic bleed to work for you, and the phase differences between nudging tracks and moving mics.

To a certain extent nudging can do a similar thing, but there's so many variables with mics and placement. That said, I think lots of records from 1970s onward are full of multi-mic phase cancelations, which became part of the sound ..The sound of a wall of skinny sounding tracks.

What to do? Close dynamic mic and a gobo?
Seems that'd work.

I'd probably just use it on drums, if anything.

Yep, in that room I'd stick with a small condenser or a dynamic mic.

Yep, check position and polarities to reduce the effects of multiple mic'ing.
