I don’t really know what that title means but seemed to make more sense than “Single-Mic Recording Is the New Black”. What I mean to say is this: In our quest to create intricate and complicated mixes, let’s remember that it starts with a great song and a great performance. No amount of studio trickery can cover up a bad song. There’s a rule of thumb in cooking and recording that says, “The fewer the ingredients, the better those ingredients have to be.”
Check out this video by Gungor. They started with a great song and chose to record this acoustic version around a single microphone. Great song + great performance + great mic & placement = great recording.
