Here for the gear

I prefer to track vocals close mic'ed because I like to add the early reflections with algorithmic reverbs. That way I'm not stuck forever with a vocal take with ambience that I probably don't want in the mix, because you know, there's halls, rooms, chambers, etc, and they all give different feels and texture.

Also the level of the ambience makes a difference in the presentation of the vocal. Sometimes you want a dry presentation, other times, a little wet makes sense for the song.
