  it's interesting that you guys in the States multitrack classical stuff. Here in the UK it's very common to go direct to stereo with classical, regardless of the number of mics used - you live and learn!


My understanding is that most high profile classical recordings are still done direct to stereo in the US however a multi-track back-up that records each mike has become common as a means of creating transitions for edits that wouldn't work otherwise.

The reason for a live mix is that the conductor needs to be able to sign off on it or else rerecord right on the spot before any mikes have been changed. There simply isn't enough money available to cover the cost of failed experiments after the fact.
