A pristine collection of Prepared Yamaha C3 studio samples, using 2 DPA (formerly Bruel&Kjaer) series 4000 omni-directional microphones. Digital recording, after 24 bit A/D conversion, took place on Tascam DA45 24 bit DAT-master. Recordings were edited in ProTools 4.3.1 on a PT24 Mix card. A little Trueverb was applied, along with some Focusrite F2 & F3 (EQ and dynamics), and mastered to HardDisk in 16 bit Sound Designer format with Waves UltraMax (L1) dithering and noise shaping. The recordings were subsequently into the AKAI S1100 with PEAK II.
