NecroPolo - BC Bill (Dreadnought on the Fly)
BC Bill was one of the first games I could successfully load from tape (...do you remember endless tape head adjusting...? ) so its tunes were among the first SID experiences I've ever had. I often played these themes as some kind of small trainers on an acoustic guitar I had at the time. After an approx. 25-years long gap, we recorded acoustic guitars for a band called Burnout recently. Recording gear was tuned for that instrument and I had a free hour to fiddle with the guitar and gear between two recording sessions and this theme was the first that came to my mind. The guitar was the same Ibanez dreadnought that I used in the KAOS track. One small diaphragm condenser (aimed to the soundhole, far) and one dynamic (aimed to the bridge, close) mics were wired into somewhat driven TLAudio preamps. For gentle final ironing and ambience SSL Duende plug-ins were used. I wanted some rough attitude natural feel so there is no editing.
Thank you for all the feedback ;)
