Triggers?

Post Triggers?

I was wondering if Vince uses triggers on his bass drums? The sound on the albums after "Shades..." is always very distinct, and cuts through brilliantly in the mix. So they're either triggered, or brilliantly recorded!

Nah, no triggers for the Vincester....he might've used The Gayifier 3000 a couple of times but no triggers. I guess its a combination of his set up and recording preference.

Go Vince then! I've no personal problem with triggers, I was just impressed at how good the bass drums sounded and cut through the mix.

I agree on the drum-sound, it's great and one of the elements I like about Evoken. I was particularly impressed with the quintuplets (hard to find vocabulary :sarcasm:) in the bass drum on "Antithesis Of Light", quite unique...

Quintuplets? Four sets of triplets?

Sorry, I totally overlooked your message...
No, quintuplets in the sense of: Imagine a triplet not with three, but with five hits. I think it's a rarely used term (as quintuplets are rarely used as such :;):). Take the beginning of "The Last Of Vitality" for instance, at first he plays the typical triplets on the bass drum just to enhance them into quintuplets in the course of the repeated riff. They pop up in several places of the album and I find them really well done and quite unique...

Aah, I know what you mean! A set of fives played as triplets! You wouldn't believe I once studied music theory would you? :D
