Re: Louie BTTS

Woah, I wouldn't take my word for it because I have had the guys work for me. While I have been told some things, my exposure was limited. I know these guys are like us, and remember things differently from time to time. I do believe Louie and I discussed him playing on the record, because I remembe...

Re: Louie BTTS

The REAL question of importance is, does gravity push us down, or pull us down?

Re: Louie BTTS

Album credits mean jack crap. Just because someone isn't listed, doesn't mean they didn't play. Just because someone was listed, doesn't mean they played. There are too many well known examples of both. Comparing The sounds of WUC to the Whiteheart tune is tough, since the Whiteheart album has sampl...

Re: The Union Of Sinners And Saints - Autographed Limited Edition 12" Vinyl LP

There's a shortage of pressing plants, too many crappy ones, and it's going to drive the prices up. The lack of good plants with good vinyl mastering engineers, and the long delivery times might quench the growth of the trend. I would be interested in lining up a digitized copy of the LP with digita...

Re: Petra Youth Choir Collection

When I first saw these, I thought it would be Petra tracks with choir, which would have been cool. I was disappointed. But, it is what it is.

Re: Louie BTTS

It is my belief that visibility, association and impressionism are what drive people to say "x is THE best". We should not mess with people's opinions, because those are tied to very special moments. Louie might be the best, because Petra was integral to a time of influence in their lives. Louie was...

Re: Louie BTTS

This is kind of an old topic, and the older I get, the more I forget what was told to me by Louie, JDB and JL. Don't think bad of Louie or the producers. There is more to all of this than appears on the surface. There is money, time and creative flow at work here. Petra was no different than most. P...

Gracious that site. They are going to have to fix it to work with Google results and phones, tablets, etc.

Re: CPR

Judas Kiss sounds too happy to me. It always has. While I liked the original version back in the day, I too think it could be heavier, darker on the verses...let the music carry the message. Someone needs to cover it this way.

Re: CPR

Ouch. :)

I keep going back to demand. We had Petra with John. We had Classic Petra with Greg, and it was pretty dang good. Neither had demand to keep going.

Who is thinking about having their church lay out $6k-10k for a concert? If you had that money, which would you want?

Re: CPR

There is almost nobody recording and mixing the stock drum sounds only in rock and metal. Mix engineers layer samples all the time. We have drum replacement plug-ins to use too. Steven Slate Drums dominates modern rock music. It's just the way it is.

Re: CPR

Quantized. In ProTools, and other DAWs, we have the ability to detect the transient, make an edit, and snap it to the nearest beat. We have the ability to adjust the swing as well, so the quantization grid isn't perfect and has a human feel.

Re: CPR

They sound Louie-like to me. That's not to say they weren't snapped to the grid. I think there is a pic or a post somewhere talking about Louie tracking in the studio.

Re: CPR

That mixing console they tracked through is no slouch. It is sort of like a SSL, minus the bite. It is very clean sounding. He has great convertors and is using ProTools. The mixes sound as produced as the original songs did, especially the vocals. To me, the instrument tracks don't quite have the t...

Re: CPR

I doubt there was a conversation about it. Anyone can cover anything as long as they all pay Bob, or whomever the copyright owners are.
