CAN, 'Vitamin C' (on Ege Bamyasi)

btw, rig, very nice stuff. really like the section starting around 0:35 that becomes somewhat torso-like in its sinewy contortions.

So I'm not the only one that can hear it, then? OK, how about this: For the Autotune-sesitive among you, who would agree that the new Plant/Krauss collaboration might not unfairly be dubbed 'Raising Pitch'? You're not the only one. Seems like every other song on the radio has been A-Ted. And the on...

yeah, i ordered some grill cloth from them a few years ago. got it without trouble, but a cursory look at internet chatter tells me i was probably one of a lucky few.

repeat: i will always check a source's reputation from now on...caveat emptor!

yeah, this was the idea... http://www.mellotron.com/cleara.htm but i'll probably want to isolate some of the internal components to make it airtight where it needs to be. it seems like the yamaha's compressor has an air intake that creates a fair amount of noise, but this would be most noticeable on...

i'd love to know what keyboard(s) were used on 'tigermilk' and 'if you're feeling sinister', especially the tracks "the state i am in", "you're just a baby", and "stars of track and field".

looking forward to reading that interview!

cool djimbe, thanks for the advice. the instrument in question has a supremely butt-ugly case that i was thinking about replacing with a custom acrylic enclosure- this would have the added benefit of being able to be made relatively airtight, i would think. mics inside the case going to an amp (or a...

ideally both, but my first priority is to use it live, hence the thought of contact mic'ing (but given what you've said about volume being relative to note spacing, this might not be the best option). at least the compressor on mine is not so bad noise-wise. it's a beautiful sound- gets me all tom w...

maybe i should clarify. the unit works fine, but as an acoustic instrument, isn't the loudest beast on the block. the pedal is working (after digging around inside the box to reconnect the lever :wink:) but no, there is no 1/4" out: the way i understand the electro-mechanics of the thing, the electr...

reed organ

i just scored a cheap yamaha student model electric reed organ. sounds wonderful, but as might be imagined, is pretty quiet. i'd like to know how best to amplify this thing- contact mic into apogee duet into logic is my first thought, but i'm absolutely open to suggestions. anyone?
