Steely Dan + Prophet-5 = true?

Post by iProg » Thu Dec 08, 2011 8:34 am

I'm going to do a Steely Dan cover gig as singer/keyboard player. I will of course use my beloved P5. I have a feeling some of the tracks on "Gaucho" feature the P5. Where and which tracks?

For starters, the harmonica solo on 'Hey Nineteen' was a Prophet 5.

Wasn't the harmonica solo on Hey 19 a melodica solo?

Anyway, I think P5 would sound awesome on the intro to Peg.

I think it would!

We're opening with "Glamour Profession", with my P5 atop a Rhodes mk1 :D

Nice one..."later we'll make some calls from my car;" times sure have changed LOL.

My band did Black Friday at our last gig. I played the 1st wurly part on a 200a and the second wurly part on V synth: Just sampled the same 200a into V synth and used a square wave LFO to modulate pan every quarter note. Sounded pretty close!
