Stats for this track
This acoustic version of the song "Watch You Sleep" by Any of Both was recorded almost exclusively with AEA ribbon microphones during a session at Maarweg Studio 2 in Cologne, Germany. Additional tracks were cut with high quality condenser microphones in parallel, so that they can be compared with the ribbons. All the individual tracks of the song as well as alternative condenser microphone tracks are available as a download. The session was engineered by German producer/engineer Wolfgang Stach who is known for his work with BAP, Guano Apes, Such A Surge, Jupiter Jones, and many other German artists.
The mix was done on a SSL 6048 G+/E series console with automation at Hemispheres Recording in Los Angeles utilizing the studio's collection of high-end outboard gear. Detailed documentation is also provided in the zip-archive with the individual tracks for download.
