My bands first 3 recordings

Post by Analogue Crazy » Sun Dec 13, 2009 9:36 pm

My band has just completed thier debut EP after 3 months of studio time. We are called Gypsytoes and are a Depeche Mode influenced gloomy Alternative band (though this EP isn't too dark as its Christmas time :D ).

Rumours sounds like the "Verve", what did you use for the strings ?

I used my Roland RD-700SX for all the strings. Like on the Famtom it boasts some really great string patches.

Sounds good Rob. Believe it or not, those are some of the best demos I've heard in ages. Your keyboards mix well with your vocalist - never one getting in the way of the other. You have a good chance of advancing the Sheffield musical legacy.

One of my friends has gone into production and has built a small studio in his basement. So yeah they were recorded in someones house, on Logic 8.

And thanks for the lovely feedback, i really appreciate your opinions. :)
