> Freddie's piano was miked with two Neumann U67s and we also set up a Shure mic for his guide vocal. He didn't sing all the way through the backing track takes, just the first couple of words of each line as a reference for the band. This comes from a Sound on Sound article from 1995, where producer and engineer of "Bohemian Rhapsody" talk about how this song was recorded.more
In this article Rob Laakso, Kurt Vile's bandmate and engineer on the album B'lieve I'm Goin Down..., tells about some equipment used in the making of the record: He takes the recording of Vile’s resonator on “All in a Daze Work” as an example. “We used a Neumann U 67 on it, and there was another condenser on his vocal—maybe a [Neumann] 47 or a 48. I was just going through the instrumentals for the record, and it’s kind of funny. There’s a lot of bleed in my so-called microphone mix on that song, but those two mics give it that sound.more
The U-67 was used on Robin's guitar and vocals during the recording of Helplessness Blues: "For the acoustic guitar tracks, Pecknold played either his '60s Martin 12?string or his Gibson six?string, miked using various combinations of the Neumann UM56, U67, U48 and Coles 4038." "By this point, it was time to record Robin Pecknold's final vocals. "Robin sounds good on a Neumann U67,” says Ek. "We tried a bunch of different mics on his voice — different 47s, I even tried an AKG 414, just to see if we could go for different characters. But we always came back to a 67.""more
In [this article](http://www.emusician.com/artists/1333/gang-signs/43966), Andy's amp micing technique is explained. "On the Peavey, for example, he normally places Latvian-made JZ mics such as the uniquely-shaped Black Hole or the BT201 as a pair in front of the amp, and then maybe a Neumann U67 in the back for room sound."more
Dj Quik in a interview with Billboard talks using the mic to help create Yg's hit "My N*gga" a few years back, "I made it super easy and super loud so anybody could've technically mixed it. And that's what they did. They didn't like the way I blended it, which is cool, so they had somebody else blend it. But before that happened, YG said he had to do the vocals over. So one of the engineers at the studio grabbed my microphone. I have a Neumann 67, which is the hot sh--. All the greats use it. I put in my 67, even went in and was talking to him in the booth like "Nail this sh--" and what not. He nailed it."more
"I’ve been recording with Universal Audio, and they were friendly enough to let me use all their plug-ins. So, basically Logic and Universal Audio. I use a couple of different guitars, some from Cordoba and one Alhambra, but they are all classical nylon-string guitars. No electrics. I’ve been switching between the AKG 414 and the Neumann U67. Usually when I do demos, it’s with a Zoom stereo dictaphone. That’s usually what I use when I’m at home. I was recording so much at home and in the studio with headphones that I’ve got lots of different headphones but ended up using the Beyerdynamic DT880s." - Gonzalez in an interview with reverbmore
"We make sure to listen in different places in the room and then place the mics based on that. For room mics I used RCA 44- BX ribbon mics about six to eight feet out and to the left and right, they happened to sound great. The RCA ribbon mics mostly picked up snare and kick. So I moved them more to the middle and they became these center mono ribbon mics. Deeper out in the room, we used a pair of Coles facing down at the floor, low to the floor; I don’t want to pick up a lot of cymbals. That’s one way to get smooth room sound without a lot of cymbals. Then we added some condenser mics: Neumann U47s and U67s, far out in the room…"more
