Elise Arnold

Elise recorded with us in March 2011 when she was only 15.

Save Me From Myself  

Originally written by Christina Aguilera, Linda Perry and Bill Bottrell. For the vocals we used the Neumann U87 close-up, into the Avalon preamp and the Avalon compressor, with no eq. They were intentionally sung very softly. The result really shows what this great mic/preamp/compressor combination is capable of. The acoustic guitar was recorded with a pair of SM57s also into the Avalons. This is an unusual way to record acoustic guitar, and was done to give the guitar more distance from the vocal. Recorded March 2011.
