  • Unidentifiable sounds

    Are there any sounds on recordings that you like but can't identify what they are?

    I've always loved this song but I'm not exactly sure what the instrument at 0.03 is. 

    It sounds like some sort of reed instrument.

     

    Never could figure out the instrument at 0:08.

    Is it a bass guitar though a fuzz box?

    Could be synths. Did they have good samplers back then? Or harmonica/sax slowed down to 1/2 speed.

      On the Sandford theme, It's a big ol' harmonica, likely a chromatic. Some of the top studio harmonica guys used chromatics because of their flexibility.


      And, on the SD, yep, bass through a fuzz box. Takes the place of baritone sax in a lot of late 60s style rock/pop arrangements. (Not that this is such an arrangement, although the role of the bass is similar.)

      The chorus seems a little weak... I think it needs more lasers.

        Thanks Blue to Blue. It's apparently a bass harmonica.

        Wow!

        Now I need to know what kind of instrument is at 0:00

        Is it some sort of electro-mechanical keyboard through some distortion and an envelope filter?
