It’s the first song I’ve solely produced on the Apollo – every amp, drum and vocal sound has gone through the Apollo and all UA plugins were used in the creation, mixing and mastering of the song.
Here is some info regarding a track from Siegfried’s band, Curtis:
“Drums were tracked through the 610B mic preamp inputs with UA Neve 1073 EQ and a bit of LA3A on snare and Dbx160 on kick. I used the Softube Marshall with my Keeley modded TS-808 for my main guitar tracks, and the Engl E765 for all the chorus thickeners and extra parts. Bass was through the Softube SVT bass amp, and all my vocals were through an SM7B into the 610B preamp with a Pultec EQ, 1176 Rev A and LA2A silver compressors. The original song used a Lexicon 224 for all the vocals, so I did the same here in UA form, giving it plenty of awesome vibe and space. On the mix bus, we decided that a single Ampex ATR102 sounded best, getting rid of everything else that sat on there before.
“The Apollo has become a game changer in the way I produce records now – I cannot be without it!”
