    Go Tell It On The Mountain - an oldie

    Here's one for DPDAN as requested! This is a recording of Go Tell It On The Mountain which I recorded back in the '80s: http://members.cox.net/jimmyortner/Mountain.mp3

    This was recorded with a Fostex 4 track cassette recorder and a Prophet 5 synth. This was before my sequencing days. Drums are played by Jim Morden.

    It still sounds great. A nice arrangement.

    I had a Roland Juno 60.

    Those Fostexs were wonderful tools as you could bounce to seven tracks.

    Phil,

    I did use to bounce stuff to get 7 tracks but the sound quality really suffered. This was done with just 4 tracks.

    Wow, blast from the past, Jim!

    Somewhere around here I think I may still have a
    (dysfunctional) Prophie...

    Neat cut, and damned well done, as always.

    Hmmm... it sounds synthy...

    I just had to say it...

    I literally didn't have much of a life in the 80's... But this is cool stuff, great arrangement, an enjoyable listen!

    This was recorded quick and with very primitive gear. The only effect was an early cheap digital delay which was quite noisy. I don't even remember what it was but it was really noisy!

    The drums were recorded with 4 mikes. One on the kick, another on the snare and 2 rooms mikes. This when into an old 16 channel mono mixing board that was really huge! I think it was about 3-4 feet wide. It had rotary knobs for the volume controls.

    Actually we did quite a few recordings with this gear.
