"Cm Jam Track" features a Taylor 455 12 string, detuned a whole step, played with a Herco Flex 50 Nylon pick. The percussion track is an iOS app called DrumJam running through a Billm modded Fender Blues Junior.
The audio was recorded on an iPad Air with GarageBand using a Tascam iM2 Stereo Condenser Microphone. 
I've added some small room reverb. Thanks to Kenevan for hipping me to "apps"!

"Lay Lady Lay" was recorded using an Apogee One into an iPad Air running GarageBand. I am playing a Taylor 455 12 string, detuned a whole step, with a Herco Flex 50 Nylon pick. The vocal mic is a Heil PR40. The 12 string is going directly into the Apogee using a B-band A2.2 system.

This is what happens when you record a Raagini that has nearly dead batteries. In this recording, I am changing the volume and tone randomly and moving the Raagini in various ways. I am using a Tascam iM2 stereo microphone plugged into an iPad Air using GarageBand.
