New Bandlab collaboration

@kiwichrys on vox, @michelefortunato on the bones, @rabbitwithmachinegun on Flutes. I do the rest.  Inspired by a recording engineer who flew to Haiti to obtain a quickie divorce. Dean Parks played the riff that Becker altered with a talk box. 1976 Royal Scam.

I thought this was an excellent mix and I really enjoyed the lead vocal.  Nice job on this cover.

Just curious - what mic and mic pre did the lead singer use?

Excellent cover of one of my favorite SD tunes.  You've done a fine job of tackling SD lately, and deserve all the credit in the world for making them your own song.  Carry on!

Thanks Douglas - not sure.  I've asked her for more info.  She lives in New Zealand.  I'll report back.  On my end, I process vocals with Nectar 3.

Thanks a lot Paul - yes it took a few weeks to get all the parts!  I'm not very good on guitar, so I had to learn and record it in smaller sections.

Steve , that was a Fantastic job from "everyone". I'd forgotten just how much I loved Steele Dan music. The vocals were absolutely killer. I had to go and listen to more of her music just to hear for myself it was actually a woman doing the vox. She could probably cover Any song. So much talent. Thanks for posting this. I Really enjoyed it.     mark

I got some info from @kiwichrys, and this is what she said.  She also said it was probably more due to me using Nectar on what she sent, but I agree the quality is good.

'An old old rusty banged up 100% reliable sm58 shure mic with xlr lead directly into a focusrite scarlett 212 interface then via a monitor volume amplifier (cos scarlett is crap for monitor volume) straight into the pc USB and directly into the bandlab studio recorder.'

Thanks a lot Mark - Steely Dan songs take a long time to learn!  I'll let @kiwichrys know about your comments here.
