the thompson and newberry studio
was located deep in the suburbs of northern
dallas in north eastern texas. recording
equipment was computer-based and synthesizers
were in both hardware and software. natural
instruments were used where possible.
recording was done in logic audio version four
with a motu eight-twenty-eight firewire sound
card. microphone recording was done with a rode
ntk and studio projects c-three amplified by
a behringer t-nineteen fifty-three tube pre-amplifier.
drum sequencing was done in fruity loops three point one one. i was
sorry, me and alfred were just too stupid to figure anything
else out (for all you sequencing snobs out there),
and we thought it was a great program. actual
melodic and compositional parts were from the "heart".
