- This album was recorded and mixed
Roland VS2480 with a set of
Roland DS-90A speakers.
- It's a very powerful unit that you can pick up used for a great price these days.
It features 24 tracks of 24-bit audio -- perfect for a home project. I have to admit,
it took me a while to get my arms around this thing, but with the help of the
VS2480 forum, I was able to conquer this beast.
- Guitars and effects
- Fender F-75 Acoustic Guitar with a Barkus-Berry pickup. For a low-end
acousitc, it has great feel and sound.
- PRS Swamp Ash Special electric guitar
- Yamaha CO-10MII compressor
- Marshall MG series 100 HDFX amp
- I used a Tube Ultragain MIC 100 Preamp/Limiter and Turbo Overdrive OD-2 to get that
nice sustain on Follow Me.
- Ibanez SDGR 5-string bass
- Keyboards and Sound Modules
- A StudioLogic SL-880 Pro Controller was used to drive all the other keyboards and sound modules. The link is for the newer model SL88.

Yamaha Motif Rack XS was used.
Sounds also included are clarinet, oboe, and (most of the) drums.
- A Korg DW8000 was used for the electronic bells on It's Too Late For Love.
- The acoustic piano on Come Back to Me and Follow Me is a Young Chang model U131.

- The acoustic piano on 52 Years Ago and But I'd Only Walk Away is an
- Drums and percussion
- Initially, I was determined to get a good acoustic drum sound but I eventually gave up.
I found it impossible to compete with the great samples that reside on today's sound modules.
- All cymbals used are Zildjian except for the splash for which I used the Motif XS module.
- The snare used for the intro to Come Back To Me was a Rogers Dynasonic.
- I also used a slot drum, claves, triangle, bongos and jembe.
- vocals, acousitc pianos and flute were all recorded using
Studio Projects B3 condenser microphones -- positively, the best condenser mic you can buy for the money.
