  • Rock & Roll: "Dirty Work" by Steely Dan Organ Intro Drawbar Settings Help

    Can't seem to find the correct sound for this organ intro on my NE3 or my SK1. Any help on this would be very much appreciated. Thanks

    As far as I know the organ solo is definitely a joke. It was recorded on a Yamaha Combo, which was a really outdated electric organ, practically a kid's toy. The band even made joking reference to how out of date the sound of the organ was in liner notes

        FWIW, the Yamaha combo organs are far from toys. You could do a lot with them, especially the YC45D. They had a distinctive sound and they're sought after instruments amongst the combo organ fraternity. Such is the demand for the sound that Yamaha have launched a mini version in their 'Reface' series.
        It's not what you play. It's not how you play. It's the fact that you're playing that counts.

          If it's the same organ as on "Do It Again," it is indeed a Yamaha combo organ. A YC30 I'm pretty sure. I recently met an engineer in Portland who used to own a studio with Walter Becker, and he has the one used on the record. You should be able to get something similar out of your Nord's Farfisa or Vox model, right?
          I probably own too many keyboards
