The sessions for Fleet Foxes’ debut album were split between Avast! Recording in Seattle and lead singer Robin Peckhold’s home. In the studio, the band recorded with producer Phil Ek on an API Legacy console.
According to Stuart Hallerman, Ek was fond of boosting the high end with the API EQ’s. The uncredited “sixth member” of the band was an EMT 140 plate reverb. At Robin’s house, the band recorded with a digital ProTools setup but did not apply any digital effects.Fleet Foxes Recording Process,
