"Dom loves that mic because of its clicky feel, and also uses it live — and we had a [Neumann] FET47 on the outside kick drum, which was placed kind of exactly in the middle of the hole in the resonance skin, and because you get that blast, we had to put a pop filter on it." - Colliva about "Drones" recording.more
"On the whole, the *Dreaming My Dreams* sessions were cut live. (...) 'The studio was small, so there wasn’t a lot of space between places,' [studio engineer Kyle] Lehning says, 'and Waylon was at the center of all of this, playing electric guitar and singing live vocals into a Neumann U47 FET. Sometimes he would fix a vocal later, but sometimes it would be that live vocal on the track. The vocal chain would have been the preamp in the Flickinger console through an LA-2A and the FET U47.'"more
In [this article](http://patricksisson.com/gang-signs-post-punk-legends-gang-of-four-revisit-old-principles-and-crank-up-the-transistor-amps-on-content/), while talking about his drum micing technique, Andy says, "The kick had a D112 inside and either a Neumann 47 or 67 outside, usually placed about one-and-a-half or two feet away."more
About the recording process of "Fallen" When it came to recording Lee's vocals at NRG, the group tested out three mics: the Telefunken Elam 251E, the AKG C-12 and the regular Neumann U47 tube mic. The U47 won. “That one seemed to have the classic presence,” reports Fortman, the producer.. “It sounded really good on Amy's voice. I love having that type of luxury, where you can record something from each mic, have everybody sit down and take time to choose.”more
There is also 'modern' audio gear in the racks: two Avalon VT737 input channels, two Chandler Germanium compressors, a Demeter Stereo Tube Direct and two Urei 1176 compressors, along with some vintage Ibanez (AD230), Ensoniq (DP4), Korg (SDD2000) and Roland (SBF325) effects — an essential ingredient of the AIR sound from the beginning. In the studio itself, there's a Yamaha grand piano, a drum kit, a vibraphone, some kalimbas, a Neumann U47 microphone and Godin's collection of guitar and bass amps.more
What mics were you using for vocals? > I pretty much do all my vocals on a Neumann U 47. Johnathan [Schenke] told me that one's best for my voice and I've always trusted him since. For the Parquet Courts record we just did in Texas, I ended up doing a lot of the vocals on a handheld Telefunken mic [M80]. I was able to get into the vocal part a bit more just by having something in my hand.more
"I don't ever use dynamic mics on a drum kit if I can help it: it'll either be ribbons or condensers. The exception would be an [Electro?voice] RE20 inside the kick, but I tend to try to use a [Neumann] U87 or 47 outside, and a Yamaha NS10 driver on the bottom. I try to line them up equidistant, so that theoretically it would always phase?align. I'll use [Neumann] KM84s on snare, top and bottom."more
