how do you recreate your tracks live
Well, first I switch off the programmed drums and get Matt to play them better.
Then I kill the bass and get Chris to improve upon that.
Then I remove the guitar parts and original vocals and ask Nick to recreate those.
Finally I find all the synth parts I'm capable of playing live and transfer them to my live synths.
The rest - impossible to play sequences, drum loops, sampled percussion etc - plays back as audio stems on Ableton Live.
The band are playing to a click track at all times to keep us in sync.
You clearly know your stuff when it comes to the technological side of music. Are there any professional or commercial songs or albums you've heard that are really poorly produced?Ott responded on 11/07/2012 Next question
