Thanks for participating in these's great to hear these experiences. I'm curious what it was like recording with Jim James. I'm a huge MMJ fan, and "Z" was an incredible step in their career I feel. What vocal mics, pres, and compressors did you use on his haunting yet familiar and calming voice?

Hi Aaron
I been answering lot of questions on MMJ so check out other posts. Vocal mic would be Neuman or Telefunken U47 or Shure SM58. Mic pre Neve 1073 and usually Urei 1176 limiter. Jim has great voice and we nearly always used reverb from Zoom Fx or EMT plate.
