For me, the hardest thing to track in a livingroom has always been a vocal. This is because the dynamics of a vocal performance only sound right with the singer around three of four feet back from the microphone. That way their head and body motion aren’t affecting the sound. Doing this requires both isolation and uncolored sound reflections from the walls so people won’t sing too loud straining their voice.
Drums, on the other hand, are a piece of cake.
Most people feel lots less intimidated in a livingroom and will give lots more convincing performances.
