I absolutely love the sound of this record!
It is one of my staple reference discs.
Reverb and ambience is obviously a big part of MMJ's sound.
- How much of the reverb is natural and captured in the engineering stage?
- What was the reverb setup for the mix and what processors and outboard were used in particular.
- I am particularly interested in the vocal reverb, how was this achieved?
Hi Mr Deaf
Jim's voice is very suited to reverb so in away any reverb you put on him is going sound good. We used mainly a Zoom fx unit Jim had. We also used the EMT plate at Sunset Sound where we mixed. Other possibilities are just an SPX90 on setting 1 large hall. Whats wrong with that? Often its the amount of reverb you use that can add the mystery. A large long setting but just the tiniest amount..try breathing canyon on Eventide H3000. Yikes !
