Pete used some other mike setups according to email conversations with him a few years back. Howard did the pitch altering thing on his latest CD.
The CD sound of his I like the best was his 2004 "Crossing Crystal Lake". I did a small (like 2 cents worth) pitch alteration on only one recording that
I liked the results of.
