Peg by Steely Dan performed by my band, Tai Chi Funk Squad.

Postby GlassToMouth » Sat Apr 13, 2019 9:18 am

I'm very much a novice in regards to audio/video recording, capturing, mixing, etc. But this is a huge improvement over typical cell phone videos with distorted low quality audio. I'm still learning Reaper and Adobe Premiere, but this was fun for sure. Not the best take in the world, nor is it the worst. Myself and my VM49K on bass. We certainly do our own spin on the song and I'm definitely no Chuck Rainey. I used my Behringer X Air X18 as an audio interface into Reaper. Great affordable tool for both live mixing and capturing multitrack audio.

Nice job. You sound great. Band sounds great.

BTW, thanks for the tip. I'll give Reaper and Adobe Premiere a try.

Enjoyed it - band sounds great!

Just in case you're interested, I found this fantastic clip - not to say your solo wasn't on point!

I missed it too. Looks like fun. I am in love with that bass. It is a thing of beauty. I like the link to the story behind the solo.I played that song a bunch in the Navy. Looks like I played the solo wrong.

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the kind words. I had this clip posted on the band's YouTube, but it received a copywrite strike. So I changed the spelling, file name, and title and uploaded it to my personal YouTube since they have a "3 strikes and you're out" policy.

Also, I swapped the Kiesel preamp and radium humbuckers out and replaced them with an EMG preamp and EMG TWX pickups which allow for push/pull coil splitting. The new pups are heard in this video and are in single coil mode, evenly blended.
