I saw in a Studio (photo) they used U87 and a MD 421 about half meter back of it.Any ideas why?
Could have been some ambient/phase trickery. Hard to say without seeing the picture and listening to what was recorded.
But... are you sure the thing was even turned on? It might have just been an alternative mic for sections or songs that needed a different "feel". Or sometimes the "best" mic in the studio isn't the right one for that particular vocalist. Whenever I walk into a studio that has a well-stocked mic closet, I like to have a few options mounted up and ready to go. I often go thru 3 or 4 mics before finding that "magic" ( ) combination. Or maybe it was left over from recording an acoustic guitar minutes earlier. Who knows, could be anything?
