Here’s a track from = that I did some work on a while back. Jim records all of Ade’s vocals in the spare room of his flat in Dalston, and although he’s using an SM7B with a reflection filter, the room is still reflective enough (and almost perfectly square as far as I can remember) to dirty up the audio with unwanted reverberation. Some gating, some careful compression and a bit of melodyne is the usual order of the day, but occasionally I flex my creative muscle and edit the parts so that whoever ends up mixing it has a good time. It’s grunt work, but I love it, because the songs are good, and it’s so different from the stuff I usually do.
