There's an article in the latest issue of Audio Media magazine about the making of U2's latest record "How to dismantle an atomic bomb". Turns out that one of the tracks is mixed on a Mackie 8-bus console and that all of Bonos vocals are recorded with a handheld SM58. A healthy reminder to all of us that what you put in front of the mic is and always will be the most important thing and that affordable gear is not always useless if you have good skills. Yes, there's Neves and SSL's in there aswell but one track was mixed on the Mackie anyway. Cool.
