The mic was placed a little farther this time. Also, there is no compression this time. Compression usually makes the sound a little more compact, but I tried to use the natural compression of the distance without having to compress in the mixing this time. This is about as far as i would put the microphone in that church, though. 1 or 2 feet closer would have been a better choice, I agree.
The sound that comes up at 5:46 is just the reproduction of the way Adam decided to play that passage. Interesting but unusual sound, indeed
Thank you for you suggestions and opinion, as always.
