I joined the Electrical Audio forum so I could get some advice on the new wiring on my guitar. While on there I stumbled up this IMMENSE post from the man himself, which contained the following paragraph:
"Unless you figure out a magic sound-stopping raygun, it is unlikely that you will be able to isolate different elements of the room tone (different instruments, for example) once the room has been excited by more than one sound source, other than by using proximity to accentuate one thing or the other."
All gold. All amazing. I want to be a sound engineer now so I understand that thread fully.
