Psychotic Dogs!

This audio track is an instrumental piece that my brother and I recorded at home about 20 years ago, using a Fostex 4-track. We pushed it to the limit, and some! Bro was a good guitar player (and bass player on this track). We named it “psychotic dogs” because of our dogs at the time, that didn’t like the neighbor’s dog. Between the three of them, they produced a very “psychotic” sound during their runs up and down the fence line. Long live their souls and many thanks to Folgers and…!

    Check out this site for some Fostex X-15 users comments on their experiences with the old musicians’ “notepad”.

    The contrapuntal lines in the 11/8 section is my favorite yet my most hated part…

    The idea was there but just could not find the best way to portray it…

    It werks though…

    Hey Deborah, I believe we just ran from the Fostex RCA outputs down to an RCA(2) to 1/8″(1) converter, into the line-in input on the sound card of the computer. Then in my case, I was able to control the input levels to the PC using the Creative software that came with the sound card. You just hit “record”. Each song creates quite a large wave file, then I was able to convert to wma. Had fun doing it. Hope that helps. jd
