    I 'd say that once I got aptrigga, the need for samples just became a really bad addiction. Mmmmmmm samples...

    One to record, the other to send to a module for monitoring.

    I can testify to that. My drummer can keep in time, but he hits like a pussy & his dynamics are all over the place. Recording him is a nightmare.

    Hi. I just want to remind everybody that Doomsday Machine has possibly the greatest guitar tone ever.

    ^

    Really?? I think it sounds a bit odd, a bit too scooped. But it works in good in the mix, i think its the scooped sound that makes the drums breath nicely. And the mix in general suffers from digital harshness although the drums sounds very nice, the snare pop like mad and the toms and OH sounds very big natural and nice

    imho still best production ever

    This is one album that returns into my CD player almost every week, even 7 years after it's release.

    p.s. updated the photos in the first post.

    edit. thanks for the move!

    Agreed...

    I think its generally one of the most balanced Arch Enemy albums between the mix and the music... so damned heavy...

    Love it...

    This album alone inspired me to record music because of the drums alone...
