On a 5.1 mix would you rather have a On-Stage or Audience mix?

    Just was wondering, I would much rather have a mix that makes me feel like I am in the audience but fairly close to the stage with a good strong Center channel handling most of the main vocals!

    Idealy, I'd like both! A audience mix for conventional listening, and a more experimental "inside-the band" mix where instruments are spread around all speakers. Both mixes have their charms for me.

    It depends on how the band was actually set up during the recording. That is the difference as to whether the mix sounds "fake" or not.
