  1. Washington show at Capital One Arena. I'm loving this recordings of whole shows. Jesus, people LOVE THEM, all the cheering and screams. It's insane.

  2. One of my friends who is a pretty successful recording engineer/producer swears by re-amping, there's no doubt it can "dial in" the tones more accurately and it takes away a lot of variables, but it does just feel less like a real recording experience to me haha. I'm a curmudgeon though. That being said, as for all the talk of presets and everything, there is a 0% chance they would just use a preset and then say "that's that!" You can still tweak tones, EQ, add effects, put it through the entire mixing/mastering process, whatever. It's just the initial sound. A random dude trying out a Mesa Boogie amp isn't going to sound exactly like Enema era Tom either. I would prefer to hear that they were using some kind of dope vintage amps and cabs and going for these awesome tones and blah blah blah, but when it comes down to it we probably wouldn't be able to tell much of a difference anyway. With the current state of this type of technology, if they want a certain tone, they'll be able to find it. Based on what Mark's bass tech has posted on Reddit, they are modeling the bass settings directly after Jerry Finn's actual amps, literally, and it comes up with an almost exact replication of the tones they have used in the past. If they're going that far for the live show, I'm sure they're doing something similar in the studio.

  3. I think people underestimate how hard it is for a professional athlete over 30yo to continue playing at the highest level - injuries hurt more, recovery takes longer and you're competing with a younger generation who studied your game. For me, MJ is the greatest ever, but what Lebron has done and is still doing demands respect. The skill and effort he put into the Lakers playoff run was very impressive. I personally don't need to shit on people just because they don't make a top 5 list or had some low points in a pretty illustrious career.

  4. Yep. You can get the perfect take or what ever using a DI and a software. Then run the guitar recording on a whole song back to an amp and find a good tone, good mics and placement and get a good sound. You can do a lot of cool stuff, crank the spring reverb up and reamp a snare or a vocal for an example.

  7. Someone said Jokic plays like he's wearing flip flops and I can't unsee it. Dirk was one of my favorite players, he's definitely more of a center, but both have some similar type takeover vibes.

  8. Yeah I think the Celtics would actually match up really well with the Nuggets. They are so talented but are too inconsistent. If they somehow manage to pull this series off in 7 games the Nuggets will be too rested to overcome i think.

  11. Start of games or end of games - it's all part of the same thing. He still has to play - and to do it at his age is phenomenal, his influence is still effective and he's still putting in solid shift for his team. I'd shift more blame to the players around him that need to contribute more. The rest of the stuff you mentioned is just petty stuff imo.

  12. Lol great to wake up to. Typed and deleted. You answered this well for me. It's the money thing for me too. It's just too much money to make to chill & load manage vs put it all out there till the buzzer, all 48 minutes. I just feel like it's way too soft, but I understand if basketball was never physical (like it maybe should have not ever been) this wouldn't be a talking point. Don't give a fuck what someone says on their social medias after a game.

  13. Got it. Yeah. Jan seems like a “don’t whine, you’re at your job,” kind of guy. Not a “don’t share your opinion on racial issues,” type of guy.

  18. I'm not well-read in this world at all, but I THINK that's sort of how the new digital rigs that Tom and Mark use work... They're able to "read" specific real amp tones that Jerry Finn used on the old albums and an algorithm tests and retests and retests 1000x until it puts out a very convincing recreation of that specific tone. Mark's bass tech explained it on reddit recently, I'll try to find it. EDIT: Here is his post: "Hi everyone. I am Mark's bass tech, Brian Diaz. Just to clarify what this is... I was given some profile files of a bass amp (Ampeg SVT) that was once owned by Jerry Finn made by a producer in the Bay Area who now owns it. What this means is that in a studio setting the amp and speakers were mic'd up and "captured" for a digital modeling amp - in this case a Kemper and Neural Quad Cortex. Live Mark is going to be using a Neural QC for his bass sounds (formerly he was using a Kemper for many years. In my personal opinion I think the QC completely obliterates Kemper in terms of sound and in ease of use) as he's discussed in his Discord and Twitch. It is a very realistic sounding replication of a tube amplifier using the capture made of the original amp. It involves some wildly complex algorithms, but ultimately it's meant to be a very convincing duplication of the characteristics of the original but in a very portable and stable digital format. We've spent time in studio and rehearsal tweaking these sounds to emulate classic album tones and current sounds used on the newest albums. TL;DR explanation: it sounds fucking sick! Hope that clears up any confusion as to what it means when the "Jerry Finn SVT" is mentioned! The technology isn't necessarily new but it's gotten way better over the last decade." Also, if you search his posts he gives out a bunch of really cool info about this kind of stuff: https://www.reddit.com/user/bkd1976

  19. It's all part of the game. Elton John is on what, his 3rd farewell tour now? Most artists are regular human beings with families and real lives who really don't make a great deal of money, especially bands like Yellowcard who for most of their existence had 5 members. In 2017 Sean had just had a baby, they went out on their own terms with their self-titled record / final tour and I really think they thought that was it. Can't blame them for wanting to capitalize on the 20th anniversary of Ocean Avenue, just enjoy it while it lasts!

  23. many people don't like Obvious, but I've always liked these two verses, they flow very well: should we try this before we give up and move on and pretend to restore what we have and hold on? + can you comfort yourself with the sense of revenge? are you leaving me here with the taste of the end?

  27. I think a lot of people just don't like Lebron because he's been vocal about racial issues. They make up shit about his game to attack, but the root of the hate is somewhere else.

  28. You obviously don't watch much basketball. I'm pretty sure Lebron has the most clutch shots in NBA history.
