Bono - tracking vocals

Hi Kevin, thanks so much for doing this.

There are many 'urban myths' circulating about tracking Bono's vox...

Would you care to share some of the techniques/tools used on the Unforgettable Fire?

grazie mille

If my memory serves me well most of his vocals were done using a C12 mic thru an LA 2A compressor with a hint of eq on the top end. Some of the performances were done in the control room with a handheld 57 and the main monitors blasting, basically to get a vibe going.

But at that moment it was certainly a more traditional studio approach. When Bono had settled on his lyrics and was in good form he really could sing through a keyhole, he has such an amazing voice and style.
