Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Dude, that video is great! I have never heard any of these bits from the Q&A (if you heard the older leaked one, this is all quite different). Really makes me wonder, yet again, if someone in the Tool camp doesn't "leak" these things to the Tool Archive account.

Re: Best Albums of 2018

Aside from the first one, which is my favorite I believe, the rest are in no particular order. Will probably add to this as I may have forgot some... Holy Fawn – Death Spells Deafheaven – Ordinary Corrupt Human Love Ghost – Prequelle Sleep – The Sciences Sumac – Love In Shadow Lil Wayne – Tha Carter...

Re: Nine Inch Nails

I was bummed going in, but the light show they have currently is fucking amazing! It's apples/oranges, but I would put what they're doing now on an equal platform compared to the super high-powered LED stuff they were doing years ago. Also, pretty sure this is the "hologram" type stuff you're thinki...

Holy fuck look at those set lists... *drool*
It was truly stunning. Also, was not a big fan at all on the album, but live God Break Down The Door tore my goddamn face off! Ditto Over And Out (he also played sax during that).

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Interacting with Tool fans online over the years, in my opinion more would think getting a tattoo of a Tool related thing was more retarded than not. Were too cool for school with irony and sarcasm up the wazoo. Or I'm just projecting. Personally, I've always been against getting "band tattoos" in ...

Re: Nine Inch Nails

Just saw them this past Friday and Saturday in NOLA. Fucking INCREDIBLE! They're as good as ever, and this may be the strongest lineup I've seen them perform with (and that's really saying something). I was iffy when it was announced and seeing videos, but I was FLOORED by the new light show. Videos...

Most (if not all) sampling systems allow you to change the pitch of the sampled sound.
Totally. Could also (probably) be a sample of the vocals that he "plays" like a synth on the sampler. To my ear, that's actually what it sounds like. I also really dig it, it usually sounds great live.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

The fact that he's clearly triggering different notes on that pedal is what makes me think it's an effect/vocal-sounding synth patch rather than a pure vocal sample.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

"layering" ...does that mean pre-recorded sounds (vocals) on top of the live singing? Well, that's the interesting part of the discussion. At the moment there is some pre-recorded vocals used in at least Jambi and Vicarious (I think Maynard triggers these with pedal or keyboard). As a live music/au...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Aenima and Lateralus both sound better than 10,000 Days, but all three are good sounding albums, so it's like splitting hairs for me. What will be interesting in regards to Maynards APC work is that the production on the vocals there were super slick, and sounded pretty processed in parts. I think ...

Also for what it's worth, at the same time Adam posted the above slide guitar photos, he posted an Instastory with him testing that and his Les Paul out through some fucking BIZARRE old amps I'd never even heard of. While he was (poorly, according to him) playing a song by another artist, the tone s...

People complain about 10k Days all the time, but I'm just not audiophile enough to notice. 10K Days sounds fucking gorgeous, and if all those "quality" think pieces about the loudness wars that turned everyone into a fucking armchair mastering engineer hadn't have come out, NO ONE would've singled ...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I don't think it's entirely out of line to surmise we're likely getting an album Spring of 2019 though, based on this (and the actual facts we know about recording, as well as when they prefer to release albums)

Definitely a 10k Days stage, and that Maynard outfit was pretty common for the 2006/7 tour.
That's in Europe during 2006 (hence the date), if I'm not mistaken.
