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. Petra was no different than most. Producers want what they want, have production schedules and limited access to band members because of scheduling limitations. In the case of Petra, JDB wa...

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.

Re: CPR

I have a huge respect and fondness for everyone involved. This isn't my cup of tea. I won't be able to listen to the whole album without comparing the tunes to the originals.

Re: John interviews Louie on LIVE IT LOUD

This interview could be hours long. Louie has lots of stories. He remembers minutia and technical things about shows and venues. It is really fun talking to him. It's like carrying on three conversations at the same time. I bet John did a lot of redirecting.

Re: Crossfire

Louie is credited with playing with Randy in both bands and with Marty.
