    (...or of the...month...:))

    Difficulty: Easy
    If you're a sound expert, please refrain from answering until other folks have had a chance to discuss the problem.

    Visualize the following situation:

    A singer on the stage is really pushing his lungs, with a mic right in front of his face. You have the gain set around -45dB, and the fader at 0 dB. In addition, you have a fairly loud CD soundtrack playing that the singer is singing to, with the fader set at 0 dB (line level input, gain at 0 dB). The mix is too loud, so you bring the Mix faders down to -30 dB or so. You listen and notice the mix sounds kinda bad.

    Why?

    I won't give the answer away, but it's the reason that VCA's are nice.

    The actor's voice is distorting at the mic and it's all down hill from there.
