Vocal Sound on "The Fall"
Hi Jacquire!
Big fan of your work, sound and approach to recording. It's great to have you here!
I'm curious about Norah Jones sound on The Fall, it's so powerfull yet so delicate, how did you achieve it that? Maybe some vocal chain, mixing techniques?

She's an amazing singer which is most of it... It's also about keeping space in everything else not to step on the vocals... I used a very hi-fi mic (Elam 250) and a trash mic (Copperphone) with a TON of compression to make the blend interesting and malleable... Thanks
