Videos from Slingshot in Vienna!!!

HOOOOOOOOLLLY SSSSHHHH**!!!!

INCREDIBLE!!

The first video is incredible, great drumming - really awesome stuff, as always!

But the second vidoe! What the hell man... Virgil just keeps getting faster and better every day isn't he?! Oh man, SICK!

I also LOVE the fact that there are actually two screens on the stage. I never knew they used those screens. I saw three of their shows - one at the 2006 tour and two at the 2007 tour. Never saw any screens. Pretty neat! I'd love to see that live some time.

Thanks for posting those awesome videos Virg and Chris!

w00t!!

Credit goes to Steve Scanlon, who mastered the in ear mix to maximise your aural gratification!! And by the way, even though the audio to part 2 is taken from the ineffectual camera mic, you can still get a sense of the quality of the P.A. mix...

Hey there Virgil, in regard to your MOTU traveler. Do you have a split of the FOH inputs, or do you just take an AUX from FOH and work with the engineer for a suitable inear mix.
I'm interested in more of a software based inear rig as apposed to my rig now which relys on me having to cart a 19 slot Rack every where and access to a FOH split.
If you could supply some feedback on this that would be great. If not ...Ah well!
All the best

Beautiful solo, Virgil! I love the kind of air this solo has. You're really telling a story!! Really nice!!

Technically as always - unbelievable, just perfect, dead-tight, monstrous chops and blowing!!

The first solo is one of the best I have seen from Virgil. It really has great direction to it and it FLOWS so well, again the sense of phrasing makes it it a very MUSICAL solo not just blowing crazy chops. Thanks Virg!

Thanks for the comments friends. With regards to the in-ear feed, I just take a stereo mix of the drums from either the monitor board, or FOH, depending on the situation. On this occasion, we had a monitor engineer on stage, so it came from there. It can be a simple process - you can even bypass the computer if you don't want to record. A good pair of triple driver in-ear monitors can also be a good investment.

Thanks for the info Virgil.
I am currently using Future Sonics in-ear monitors, Which produce an awesome warm drum tone.That with a kick drum signal patched through a shaker really puts you in whole new world of awareness that a drum fill just doesn't produce.

Thanks again for the information mate
All the best

I loved the performance also, great idea to share the experience from your point of view Virgil. It's really pleasing to have taken time to drop us a few lines. Thank you!
