Offsping IOTH vocals
Hi Dave, love your work and thanks for sharing with us :)

Ixnay on the Hombre was one of my early music acquisition, and it really made some impact on me. Looking back and listening again I wonder how the vocals were tracked and effected, especially on Ixnay, as on Americana, this type of vocal sound get more scarce replaced by drier vocals, but on Ixnay it's all over it.

How was it done? is it actually double/multiple tracked? room mics? Or just delay / verb / harmonizer?

I double and triple tracked the vocals. And I did use delay/Harmonizer 3000/480 Lexicon reverb . Today i go more dry however I still use delay from my Roland 501 and I love the effects in
the new Eventide H9.

sounds like a real lot of editing :) It also sounds quite different from AiC type of doubling. Whats the difference in approach?

Did you treat the different tracks separattely or just set the levels and treat as a group? whats the thinking behind it?

I treat the vocals both separately and as a group.
