Hi,

Does anyone know if ZDLR uses vocal effects for RATM or ODAL? It sounds like there is some kind of subtle distortion there. I'm trying to find out what it is.

Google refuses to help me with this question.

...If the answer is no, does anybody know what the vocal effect is called that is used on The Beastie Boys' "So What'Cha Want?"


Thanks in advance.

I know that Zack occasionally double tracks his vocals to give a fuller sound for some songs such as guerrilla radio and No shelter. And he'll stand back from the mic and record vocals with an echo. I don't know about any other effects though.

Wow dude, how do you know that? I'm gonna try that technique out some time when recording.

well if you listen to the songs long enough it becomes apparent and you can hear clearly in certain parts that he sang the lyrics twice to add a fuller sound. I can't prove it cause I've never been able to ask him of course, but its pretty easy to figure out. The Beatles is a good way to check out what double tracking or overdubs sounds like john Lennon did it a lot. tracks like no shelter,guerrilla radio and microphone fiend are good examples from rage. paperback writer and ticket to ride are good Beatles examples.

"Just a few more minutes…please Mommy!"
Although my own children were grown, I found myself turning instinctively in the direction of the little voice. He was trailing

after his mother, looking reluctantly over his shoulder at a display of remote control toys in the large department store.

He couldn't have been more than four years old. With chubby checks and wispy blond hair going in several directions, he trotted

behind his mother down the main aisle of the department store. His boots caught my eye. They were green. Really green. Bright,

shiny, Kermit-the-Frog, green. Obviously new and a little too big, the boots stopped just below his knees leaving a hint of

dimpled legs disappearing into rumpled shorts. Perfect boots for the rainy transition from summer to fall.
Wow gold,

He stopped abruptly at a display of full-length mirrors, lifting one foot at a time, grinning and admiring his boots until his

mother called for him to catch up to her. Dressed in a suit, heels clicking on the tile floor, she was tossing items into her

cart as she and her son made their way to the checkout lanes at the front of the store.

I smiled at the picture he made clumping noisily behind his mother. I found myself wondering if she had just picked him up from

daycare after a busy day in an office somewhere. I sighed as I selected an item and put it in my own cart. My days of trying to

juggle a full time job and two small children had been busy, sometimes even hectic, but I missed them.

Finishing my own shopping, I forgot about the little boy and his mother until I stepped outside the store. There a panorama

unfolded before me. The rain had slowed to a drizzle, perforating the numerous puddles in the parking lot. Several mothers with

their small children were hurrying in and out of the department store. The children were, of course, making beelines to the

puddles that dotted their way from the cars to the store's entrance. The mothers were right behind them, scolding.

world of warcraft gold,

"Ge"You'll ruin your shoes!"

"What's the matter with you? Are you deaf? I said, GET OUT OF THAT PUDDLE!"

And so it continued. The children were being pulled away from the puddles and hurried along. All except for one…the little

green-booted boy.

He and his mother were not rushing anywhere. The boy was happily splashing away in the largest puddle in the parking lot,

oblivious to the rain and to the people coming and going. His wispy hair was plastered to his head and a huge smile was

plastered on his face. And his mother? She put up her umbrella, adjusted her packages and waited. Not scolding, not rushing.

Just watching.
world of warcraft gold,

As she fished her car keys out of her purse, the boy, hearing the familiar jingling, paused in mid-splash and looked up.

"Just a few more minutes? Please Mommy?" He begged.

She hesitated, and then she smiled at him.

"Okay!" she responded and adjusted her packages again.
By the time I got to my car, loaded my packages and was ready to ease out of my parking space, the green-booted boy and his

mother were walking toward their car, smiling and talking.

How much time did that "few more minutes" take out of her day? Probably about five. Not so much time out of a busy day. So what

if she got home a little later than she had planned?

cd keys,

What a contrast the boy and his mother were to the other families I had just seen. What volumes that "few more minutes" spoke

to that little boy about his value to his mother. Nothing in her universe was so pressing that it couldn't wait a few more

minutes to let her young son try out his new boots-an important event in the life of How many times had my children begged for

"just a few more minutes"? Had I smiled and waited like the mother of the green booted boy? Or had I scolded?

wow power leveling,

Just a few more minutes. Everything I have read about time management for working mothers can be summed up in one picture. The

picture of that young mother standing under her umbrella, arms full of packages, smiling her assent to a wet, green-booted boy

who had asked her the universal time management question for working mothers everywhere,

"Just a few more minutes?"

I can confirm I was there when the RATM tracks were being recorded.
It's like filling in gaps with more lyrics, to give as one poster said a fuller sound.
And it does.
PS, who's the banter clown?
