Don't worry, I won't say that! This particular session, according to the producer, will be "pop rock," whatever that means. Not metal, I guess!
I hate to take up too much space with a big mic list, but here goes:
57's x6, Beta 56 x3, SM98 x2, Audix D1, E-V ND 308, 408, RE-20
D112, Beta 52, PR40, ATM25
KM140 x2, 451 x2, A-T 4051, MK012 (Chinese version) x3
UMT70S x2, 4033 X2, 414 (Jim Williams mods) x2
M160 x2, R84
Plenty of options. Maybe too many for me, in fact! Should I just roll dice?
