An Interview With James Ford

An interesting article in which James Ford, producer of many Arctic Monkeys albums, explains how he created the right sound for the band’s albums:

“I don’t think we had a hat mic, or if we did, we didn’t use it. We had Neumann U67s out in the room and we tried PZMs on the floor, but we didn’t end using those either.” -James Ford

Ford also suggests that he used the famous ‘Glyn Johns Method’ for recording drums on some of Arctic Monkeys’ tracks.
