As I mentioned some of the drum kit used the saffires pres. The Tom microphones passed through them, as did the kick.
Rode NT5's overheads, JLM Baby Animal Mic pre (I built this 8)...)
Snare JLM TG500 mic pre, Shure SM57
Rack Tom, Shure SM58 Saffire Pre
Floor Tom, Audix OM5 Saffire Pre
Kick, Audix D5, Saffire Pre
Room mics were Mojave MA200 and MA100 into saffire pro preamps
Drum kit is Gretsch Catalina Jazz kit with Sabian Pro cymbals
Elec Guitar, JLM TG500, shure SM57 , Strat into Fender princeton resissue.
Acoustic Guitar, Maton Messiah, AKG 414XLS, JLM Baby Animal Mic Pre
Dobro , regal wooden resonator, Mojave MA100 SD mic, into TG500 mic pre
Vocal Mojave MA200 LD mic, into Baby Animal Mic Pre, JLM FC500 compressor.
Bass, was a session player out of Nashville, I think it was a fender jazz into Neve 1272 mic pre.
Some of the tracks got outboard EQ via API 550B eq.
In the mix there is some use of the IK multimedia Black 76 and White LA2A
Delay is logics delay.
Cytomic Glue buss compressor
Slate VCC with Neve on the Channels, and Trident on the Mix buss.
All the stuff passes through the saffires pres, because thats the way it is. I just set them up for unity gain when using external preamps.
I track and mix with a 0VU equals -18dBFS so the peaks I hit are no more than about -10dB
It was professionally mastered.
cheers and thanks for asking, probably more info than you wanted 8)
