Dimitris (the singer from DPARK), Darkenius Storm and I are working on making LP demos full songs with vocals in the same exact style of LP. We don't know all the songs we are gonna work on, but Thoughts That Take Away My Pride, Program, and maybe Basquiat are the priority now. (suggest which other ones you'd like!) We are looking for someone to rap and play the guitar to help us in this project. Please let me know if you are interested. HEAR A SAMPLE OF THE SONGS HERE:
Okay Okay Okay Okay, I know, that I had already made a post similar to this, but THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT, because I think i got scarily close to Brad's 1999 demo tone. Since my school closed down to a preety obvious reason that starts with a "C", i was bored out of my mind, and i was like "Hey, maybe i will finally do some research, you know, find some info about that rockingly amazing tone", nada, as i expected, so i took matters into my own hands and listened to stems of OSC, or Crawling, but again, i realised that if i wanted to REALLY discover "the tone" i had to dig deeper, right into the Xero/HT Era, i tweaked a few knobs and Bada-Boom Bada-Bing and i think its Very Very close, now unlike that idiotic theory i stated "He probs used guitar pedals", i found a purely Mesa/Boogie required tone, and with a few EQ Changes (Which probably were done originally to reduce sub and high frequencies anyway), so Here is a demo i've recorded. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13TwM19nFij577GxVFh8Z3aNtyx0yiqpG/view?usp=sharing The first part is the original recording of "Could Have Been", the 2nd part is my recording, and the 3rd thing is the chorus near the end which i've also recorded. Let me know if its close, or if it isnt. Im probably gonna search for that tone for a while, any bit of info helps. EDIT: 29.10.20 So i just pushed the mic a bit away from the amp and sweet jesus, it sounds so damn close, that when i showed it to my brother he said "I like the other one better, sounds higher quality" and that was the tone i just found, so again, posting a Demo file, this time of "Blue". https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yIW230l2-JeByA0v7eGIlC_AUhVQzrh7/view?usp=sharing
I know, that it seems far-fetched, the legendary "And One" and HT tone discovered, but believe me when i say that i suspect what's going on in there. For Starters - Brad is always pictured (as any Nu-Metal guitarist) with a Mesa/Boogie Rectifier, double, triple, doesnt matter. What's interesting is that in the video "JAMMIN WITH HYBRID THEORY", a traditional channel switch for a Mesa amp is not present, however there appears to be a black box in its' place https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfvUTQILjVQ, on 0:34, what confirms that it's a distortion pedal is that Brad activated it right after the clean intro. My guess is, that it's a Boss MT Metal zone, being 1999, METAL ZONE was the only alternative for a distortion pedal, but i happen to own a Turbo distortion BOSS DS-2 pedal, which is preety close. I use it on the clean channel of my Mesa Amp, with a ValveKing cab from PEAVEY, CLEAN SETTINGS: (in o'clock) Presence: 3 Master: 12 o'clock Gain: 12 o'clock Bass: 1 o'clock Mid: none Treble: 1 o'clock PEDAL SETTINGS: Level: max Tone: slightly over 3 o'clock Distortion: Max Turbo: I i also want to mentoin that i use the distortion in front of the amp, if you want to get all preety for the recordings, i suggest Quadruple tracking with two turbo distortion tracks and two Mesa/Boogie distortin tracks. The Red channel settings are as follows: Presence: 3 o'clock Master: 1 o'clock Gain: 4:30 o'clock Bass: 2:30 o'clock Mid: 9 o'clock Treble: 2 o'clock Now YOU can have the 1999's Hybrid Theory tone, you're welcome
