Steve Albini utilized a John Hardy M1 Microphone Preamplifier while recording The Breeders' "Title TK" album. > I love that song. There's something real and broken about her singing there that reminds me of some people I know who've done a bunch of shit they regret. Vocal was probably the same mic we'd been using for the rest of the record, probably a Shure SM7 through a John Hardy mic amp. Recorded to GP9 on a Studer A820. Kim was really fond of the sound of a slightly-overloaded cassette dub of the rough mix, so for the final mix we aligned a 1/4-inch 2-track machine for a slight overload (+6>500nWb/m on Agfa PEM408 for technical readers) then copied that to the 1/2-inch master.more
“Michael [Stipe] wanted to do all his vocals in the control room; we liked the immediacy of being able to work next to each other,” confides Candiloro. “So I put up a straight mic stand and an Audio-Technica AE5400 with no pop filter and ran that into the John Hardy M-1 mic pre. Although we did the basic tracks on 2-inch 24-track analog, by the time we were recording vocals we dumped everything into Pro Tools.”more
