Recommended Posts

So, I guess it'd be fun to have a list of things that each band member does for every song on ATS, the thing is, I don't know what they do. haha. But I guess I'll start and someone can finish what I leave with. (I'll probably make a lot of mistakes and give wrong info. haha)

 

The Requiem.

- I think it's just the studio version, pumped through live speakers. I may be wrong.

 

The Radiance.

- It's a piano transition from Numb and Jo does the scratch speech while Mile plays the piano and sings lines from The Catalyst with a vocoder effect.

 

Burning in the skies

-Mike & Chester on vocals, Mike plays guitar solo, brad finger picks, Joe (I dunno), Rob drums.

 

 

well, anyway, I rather someone with more understanding and knowledge give this info.

So Mike plays the synth parts of Jornada Del Muerto?

Yep, the synth solo that comes in at 0:43 (on the studio version) is him. I don't think he plays anything before that, but I could be wrong.

 

Its kind of lame that most of the gang vocals are sampled, but it probably wouldn't sound as good with just the band singing.

I think they learned their lesson from experimenting with Hands Held High in a live setting that when they have a song with a lot of vocal layering, it's probably best to sample certain parts. Adding Joe and Brad to the mix with backing vocals (and utilizing Phoenix more often) certainly helps, but none of them are particularly strong singers, so augmenting them with the backing track works out better. If you listen to WFTE from the Berlin DSP, for example, and compare it with the same track from one of the recent Australian DSPs, the difference is like night and day when it comes to the backing vocals.

I'm normally the last guy to bump a 6-month old thread, but since the live versions of some ATS songs have evolved a bit over that timeframe, I've updated my post of all the live parts to reflect recent changes.
