ased a record that he's been working on for 21 years.
know is near and dear to the hearts of Linux Audio enthusiasts.
een a year or two since the sessions so I don't remember exactly what I=
played on what.
n to get a Deep Purple kind of sound, some Specimen with Mellotron samples =
(it's prog rock, you GOTTA have Mellotron!), and also Fluidsynth with c=
lav samples through a hellacious jack-rack of plugins.

ple on this list will enjoy many, if not all, of the tracks.

I'll pass along your kind words to Bob. He's been working on =
this record for pretty much his entire adult life. Perhaps nobody is more t=
hrilled than me to see it FINALLY out in the open (I recorded the first dem=
os of it for him on a 4-track in 1993).

Also, you're like the third person who mentioned Gentle Giant. I'll=
pass that along too.

By the way, the track "Menager I" has Beatrix all over it. I didn=
't originally realize how prominent the organ was going to be mixed, in=
both the slow part and the heavy metal part (distorted Beatrix), but it&#3=
9;s definitely evident. The clav stuff I did on one of the other tracks app=
ears not to have made it into the final mix, but a lot of Mellotron (using =
Specimen and JackRack with Fons' 4-band parametric EQ) did.
