Both are major sound bands in that they have character sounds that are very different than other bands.

Backpads, fake oboe and drums from Blood On The Rooftops. My favourite Genesis song.

Backpads are a washy verby Mellotron violins and the fake oboe is an Arp ProSoloist.

+1 - not sure if it's the same patch or not, but the pulsing simple monotone bass line, turning it into a pedal point exercise.

On the 13th and/or 14th of this month there will be a special somewhat Genesis-related event that I will kind of "blog" in this forum so if you're into this conversation you may want to be around those two days... it may include some live video feeds of your friendly neighborhood Squid in action as well as some of the gear you all love. You'll see.

Well, I just got an RMI so I can scratch that one off my list. Next, I am thinking it would be nice to get a Mellotron, or even an ARP soloist.

Here is a vid of my RMI.

We're working with two producers of Genesis' past this week. On Friday I will try to do some real time video of the session with Nick Davis who is one of the two. This should be one of the most fun sessions I can imagine next to the one next week which is also really cool and involves recording consoles that were used years ago at Abbey Road (EMI Redd console and then a TG12345 board). Gear galore and some engineering secrets revealed... well, it's exciting. This is as good as it gets for me... especially since there is not just sampling but music (an album) involved as well in the works. Fun stuff. I am also trying to reuinite some musicians. No it's not Gabriel with Genesis (that would be amazing) this is something different (another band) but it's just right up my alley of classic rock production. It will be well video documented as a lot of these sessions are... just only bits have been seen so far. You guys haven't even seen the Peart sessions. That was even done in a hybrid TV studio/music studio so these crazy booms and stuff.

If I have internet access I will post some pics perhaps tomorrow if I can for anyone interested in seeing some classic gear... some you may even recognize! Like a double neck Ricky. ;)

Yes DAVE....

Post them all and while you are with Nick (at the Farm) I assume, steal the vocal tracks for The Lamb for me... I am getting tired of trying to clip them from the originals (too much work). Tell Nick that what I have heard of BOX SET 3 is truly AMAZING. Can't wait to get the surround sound versions (should be here tomorrow).

Thanks,

I'm getting the box set this week hopefully. But, if you want the vocals solo then that's easy. They're in the center channel of the 5.1 mixes. I love that Nick mixes it that way. Really discrete sounding surround. Can't wait to hear the box set.

Oh and yeah you'll finally have the definitive Phil Collins drum sound Jimbo but not just that... gets better. We're on a mission.

Well,

I will be HAPPY to BETA them for FREE for ya DAVE... and if it gets better, I can't wait.....

I already picked up Soundforge 9 just for the surround channel editing it provides.... are the backing vocals isolated too in the center track????? That would be too good to be true.

EMAIL the samples of Phils kit (I hope the one he used on TTDOB). And make sure you sample the kick with the LAMBSWOOL beater.

Dave, you really are getting me excited.... Phil's kit is the last sound I need.

Thanks,
