Yeah, but the organ isn't new, and the choir and orchestra aren't instruments!! :D :D

Steve did actually buy and use a new bass. A Yamaha Nathan East Signature model. It sounds terrific.

I played a virginaal... it's essentially a small square harpsichord, which should make it a clavichord, but apparently there is some difference, though I don't quite know what it is. I also used a couple very cool samples, like a bombarde, which is a small blatty reed instrument much like a Crumhorn, and zither and hammer dulcimer.

So he finally made the leap to a five-string, eh? I remember an online chat one night, in which y'all typed lines to the following effect...
Fred> I'm still trying to get him to buy a 5 string, though
Steve> Nope, 8 has more power, more glory
I've been playing a 5 for fifteen years, Steve. Wake up and smell the toast burning. 8)

Huh. I went noodling about the Yamaha website before I posted--they don't even show that signature instrument being offered in any configuration besides 5-string. Oh well. Whatever floats his boat.

Your first time playing a virginal? :lol:

I've been in the same room as a bombard being played. It really goes up to eleven. Wow what a noise!

What's the lovely instrument on the second track of Chronometree? I get mixed up with all those stringed percussion. Are we getting more of that?

Chronometree- that was an Autoharp. Actually forgot I have one of those :oops: The Hammer Dulcimer sound is similar...
