    So here is the third Beatles project song in the row. Again, another one from the early Beatles days, and this is We Can Work It Out. Quite a tricky one to program drums for, with the different time signatures, but Cubase does allow for anything that needs to be done, including a ramping up of tempo for a given section. Also, to make it more natural sounding for our voices, we tuned it down by half a note.

    Acoustic guitar was recorded with a Studio Projects C1 plus the piezo pickup. Bass guitar (Fender Precision Bass Special) went directly into a TL Audio C-5021 tube compressor and then to the DM. Vocal mic used was my go-to mic, Neumann TLM-103. I'm quite pleased with how the vocal double turned out. I've done it many times before, but here somehow it came out very nice, if I say so myself... Tambourine was also recorded with the C1, everything recorded in Cubase 11, and the two different harmoniums come from the Nord Electro 3.

    Here it is: https://soundcloud.com/soundbytestudio/we-can-work-it-out Hope you like it, and any comments are welcome again ofcourse!
