After listening to three mixes of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On?” in class today, I decided to do some research on the original track. Here is a great read I found talking about some of the session details:
Also, here is the wikipedia page for Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On?”:
They used an RCA DX77 on the kick. I don’t think I will be trying that in the advanced class next year. I would like to try to use a couple U87’s as overheads though. Even though this track featured the tube sibling to the U87, the U67, I have heard that the 87’s do very well as overheads.
enjoy the read!
