The Recordings

We went all out on recording this project as authentically as possible. Working at Manhattan's iconic Sear Sound Studio A, we captured the sound of three elite NYC session singers, using the tools and techniques of the era. A brief list of the coveted classic gear we used includes, original Neumann U67 tube mic, RCA DX77 ribbon mic, Neve 8038 custom console, Fairchild limiter, and Ampex ½” tape machine.

Each patch offers 3 microphone positions:

  • Close mic 1 (Neumann U67 > Neve pre > Ampex tape at 30ips)
