We play to backing tracks. Me, the bassist and the drummer can also trigger samples. The singer has a voice-over, so she can create harmonies with that. In this particular track however there a quite some tracks going on, because there are a lot of layers. So the Bell sounds, those cheap drum fills and percussion, harmonies in the chorus and some FX’s are all coming from the tracks.
I have to admit in the beginning I had some problems with all those tracks, and I still sometimes do. But apparently this is the sound people want to hear. Triggering everything live is (almost) impossible.
