It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

RE: Madeline requests that you read her essay before commenting

I'll read it, but I'm just expressing my already held opinion.
Certainly one-shot Live recordings will appeal to Madeline more, but they are few and far-between.
In Movies, a scene may done over and over, until the actors are really into it.
The same can occur at recording sessions, and what is heard in the booth will reveal things the musicians aren't aware of, being off or out of tune, out of balance, which they will try to improve by further takes.
I would certainly object to the opinion that edits are somehow dishonest, tho.
But I have no Threshold of Excess in that regard.
Lots off things went wrong during my recent week with the SFS, you noticed the Clarinet squeak.
No way they would let that on an Album, tho. ( No Album was recorded that week of course ).
Perfection is so difficult.
On my personal recordings of groups I'm in, mistakes become part of whole, I just accept and kind listen around them, and the sting fades with time, become less important, instead of the Huge Problem they seem initially, especially on my own Pieces/Arrangements!
I will say that this isn't a subject I think about much.
