Lorde Royals vocal mic and reverb

Does anyone have any inside info on the vocal mic or the reverb used on Royals?

Not sure if it was remixed at any point (there's a "US version" on vevo) but the original mix that appears on the love club ep was just done 100% ITB.

I worked with Joel little (producer) the other day. Didn't ask what plugins he used I'm afraid.

I agree, it's a great production/song/all round package!

Here for the gear
 

A friend of mine told me that this dude was used for all her vocals.

Josephson E22S - Vintage King Audio

but this came from a friend of mine who knows Joel quite well, and i trust him on this sort of nerdship.

Why don't one of you gents invite him over here to discuss the track and production/recording techniques he used?

It is a compelling piece of music.

I guess the vocal stands out because there is no crowded instrumentation.

Everything has its place perfectly.

Sort of like a Max Martin minimalist approach.

If I cant hear it then it shouldn't be there.

Hats off to a nice production.

Cheers

http://goldenagestudio.tumblr.com/ is Joel's website.

He did comment that the production on "Royals" was all about staying out of the way of the melodies/vocal arrangement.

Fully agree with you here!

I've mailed him this thread - maybe he'll join in, I don't know how much of a forum-ite he is.

Thanks for sharing, there is a lot of great info here! I really dig the arrangement and the sound of that recording.

It would be cool if Joel could join in here and share some more tidbits.

saw some videos on his site, it looked like he had a 4 channel api pre, an rme hammer fall interface maybe, and a distressor.
