Fokkum 'Investigate!' cd-r is a Do It Yourself 2-track (left/right but 16 mics) live recording.

Only the vocals were done afterwards.

So: no separate room recording, no compression, no over-dubs, no after-mix, no tweaking, no cleaning up.

Just a live, raw, honest and clear digital recording!

---> We wanted to make a statement against all the over-produced studio albums out there (we don't like that sound at all).

With our approach, it's what you hear is what you get.

It took us 3 days just to find the right balance (pre-mix) between instruments and 5 days to record it all (no room for mistakes while recording all together at once)…

It was a lot of work doing it this way, but it was worth it for sure (we learned a lot too)…..    :-)
