The Inside Story

- by Alberto and Enrico Minetti

[Minetti Brothers] All the recordings were made in one evening at Henry's house. The tune was played several times to improve the synchrony, and put on DAT without any DSP effects. The post-processing continued during the night at Alberto's house where DSP and mixing were added and some vicious mistakes were removed from the tracks by using the 16 bit sound capabilities of the PowerMac. Due to some DAT incompatibilities between our and John Hagewood's equipment, we used a CD-ROM recorder to master a CD to send (containing just less than 3 minutes music).
