All performances (instrumental and vocal) are recorded live to hard drive using modern multi-track technology. No pitch correcting devices (hardware or software), quantizers, sequencers, samplers or drum machines have been utilized.
All of the electric guitar tracks have been recorded using a Carruthers Custom Model S6 (Stratocaster) played either directly into an Avalon VT-737sp preamp or amplified using a Mesa Boogie Mark IV. No distortion boxes or tone-altering plugins have been employed. Except for the use of a Cry Baby Wah-Wah on the solo of Tell Me (That You Love Me) and intro of The Dance of Leah, no pedals of any kind have been used. Reverb and delay (where employed) have been generated via software. The bass tracks have been recorded using a Fender Jazz Bass played directly into an Avalon preamp. The keyboard tracks include Yamaha electric piano, Hammond organ and various Korg synthesizers. The drum tracks were recorded using DW Drums and Zildjian cymbols. The various percussion instruments used on these recordings are all handmade and sourced from our friends in Madagascar.
