How do they do it?

Recommended Posts

Are any of you guys familiar with Nine Inch Nails,Ministry, or Marilyn Manson? How do these guys run such distorted vocals live without massive feedback? I've tried it with noise-gates and it isn't the greatest solution. They seem to switch in and out of several variations of distorted and compressed vocal sounds. How is it done?

Now don't shoot me, I could be very wrong on this.


I've done a few shows where an ADAT or DA88 track was used to feed a SMPTE signal to a Whole Hog II or an ETC Expression in order to sync the intelligent lighting to the music and coreography. The tape would also have a click through the entire show -- as well as tracks for all of the instruments / vocals on stage. Given this type of set-up, you'd only need a live mic on stage when they say "Hello Cleveland!"


They may be using in-ear's, without any vocal in the wedges.


Maybe try it without effect in the wedges, or ring out the hottest frequencies in the effect / wedge combination.


I hope this helps, although my guess is you've tried this already. Thanks for your time,
