Lives for gear

Thread Starter

Hello Daniel and thanks for taking the time to respond to our nerdy questions...

Can you share any insights on the recording of Brian Eno's Apollo?

I can hear a lot of what seems tape manipulations but what synths and keyboards were involved?

Also if you can tell us about this rather distinctive guitar sound on "Deep blue Day"

Thank you

The main synth was a Yamaha CS-80. This is a polyphonic synth, one of Yamaha's first. On Deep Blue Day there are two guitars, a strumming Strat plays the rhythm and the steel guitar is my Sho-Bud single neck Professional. They were both recorded DI. Eno put a massive treatment on everything. The complexities of the chain are unspeakable! But those treatments were worked on for weeks on end.
