We use on recording Vocals with the Apollo console. It's just like having the hardware.
“During the recording I really didn’t use much processing at all,” Candiloro states. “On fitting his vocal in the mix, most of what I wanted to hear was his voice naturally. Every so often I used a Waves C4 multi-band compressor if I needed to pull certain frequencies out. With less heavy compression I could get the vocal to breath a little bit more. We were on the SSL 9000J but I didn’t use their compressor, I was using an [Universal Audio] LA-2A. With Pro Tools you can do some quick automation and it’s always going to sound more natural than compressing the life out of something just to get it to cut through. Michael likes plate reverb on his voice, so we used that too.”more
"I built my studio not to look like a studio, because I don't like studios!” Troelsen says. "I guess the most unique thing about it is the interior, but my studio is also different in terms of what's inside it. All the gear is very non-standard. I think the only standard things I have there are Neumann mics, the Universal Audio Teletronix LA2A compressor and Pro Tools. But the rest is just really odd gear — prototypes and all sorts of things.”more
