    I would like to know what was used for the bass as far as what kind of bass, preamp etc.

    I have been trying to get a bass tone like that forever and can't even come close.

    Thanks for the reply dude. So you just took the DI from the firebass head and thats the tone on the record eh? did you also take a straight DI from the bass only?

    Just got this album and I like it.

    Of note, IMO the snare does not sound so much like the distinct Sneap trademark snare I was expecting, seems to have a different vibe. Still sounds great!

    Andy has said that listeners perspective just sounds 'right' to him, but if the drummer wants it from his perspective, he'll just mix it from listeners and swap it at the end.

    lol I've been watching these video's for 3 days and still can't get over how "perfect" (imo) he is

    http://www.youtube.com/user/alexgrind (not sure if this was posted on here before)
    That drum fill at 9 seconds on the
    "Despised Icon - i was pissed haahaha" video is INSANE!

    anyway, this is off topic
