AG: this was only the second recording made on my new Roland VS-2480 Digital Recorder.

I used sixteen tracks and multi-tracked instruments in the order shown below, with vocals being added last. Yes, the drums did go on as last instrument using finger pads (five tracks bass, snare, toms, cymbals, hi-hat) and all the instruments were recorded prior to that using the internal metronome.

Vocals are a mixture of dry and wet on two different tracks. It was then mixed down to two-track stereo after applying delay and microphone modelling effects patches from the VS-2480.
