    Anyone know how Joey does the glitches in this album, such as the one in the start of 'Closure'..?

    Does he cut and edit by hand, or use a specific plugin? :worship:

    Danny is actually a really good singer, just sayin

    you guys gotta think, they tour years on end so his throat is constantly being used which makes recovering from any type of illness or throat problem damn hard. Secondly its their first "live" TV show (nerves have got to be all over the place) and It seems like he is sober when he is used to singing drunk as fuck. It all plays a roll.
    I would honestly say Danny is one of the better singers that Joey and Nick have tracked.

    They did 31k in the first week and made it to number 9 on The Billboard 200! I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure that this is the biggest first week a Joey produced album has ever had. Congrats Yoseph and Nick!

    I don't know about really good singer, his pronunciation isn't the greatest when it comes to recording and he sings different melodies live. He has a very tone and puts a ton of effort in when it comes to recording, I'll definitely give him that.

    everyone tries to pin a million reasons on the whole singer live / studio thing.

    the fact of the matter is seriously, in the studio you're just standing there, and you can punch in. thats all it is folks. it's not because we "fix it". yes we edit it, but if it was shit at first, it will be shit after editing. so yeah, you still need to be able to sing well.

    and for whoever said (he's no where NEAR the notes at all), you're exaggerating.

    just lots of messing with little bits of audio from the song. almost all my weird nosies are made from parts of the song. you'd be surprised what you can do with a 64th note of a guitar or vocal.

    Different speakers make different frequencies stand out. Joey, do you listen to every mix through different speakers? I usually listen to them in my main monitors, then crappy computer speakers, then laptop speakers, car speakers, stereo speakers and lastly headphones and earphones. Do you do that too? I notice that it helps me find the sweet spot as far as volumes on everything.

    To me this was pretty obvious, but maybe you dont know?

    The band is from the UK, I would have to say A LOT of things they say and pronounce are a bit different than we do here in the states.

    How involved were you in writing the lyrics/melodies for this album... would you say that you wrote the majority of them and is this a common thing for you producing the bands that you produce... do you typically write a lot of the lyrics and typically place them (singing/screaming) where you think they sound good in the arrangement?
