MacFarlane used Sinatra's microphone to record standards album

Celebrated animator-turned-crooner Seth Macfarlane attempted to conjure up a little Sinatra magic as he recorded his new standards album by using the singer's very own microphone.

The Family Guy and American Dad creator also recorded his vocals for Music Is Better Than Words in the Capitol Records studio in Los Angeles Sinatra used for many of his classics.

MacFarlane tells Spinner.com, "That mic is over 60 years old and you can see it. But it has a really nice, dark sound to it. It really plays a significant part on how this stuff sounds. You don't want it to sound too crisp."
