Hey guys! Just wanted to bring this topic into discussion. I always pay attention to the drums in the songs, and with this new LP record, there are a lot of stuff going on (electronic stuff mostly). I'm always watching live presentations, and I noticed that the drums on Waiting For The End ALWAYS sound the same (exactly like the album). I don't really know if he uses playback or something similar because he can't reproduce live the sound of the drums on that song. I've always wondered if Rob actually plays live drums and they change the sound of the snare and bass drum to that 'old school' kind of drums, or if everything is sampled and he plays 'something' over that sample and pretend he's doing everything live. For example, this is from the MSG show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtPKvwVGNAA Pay attention between 3:29 and 3:32. You can hear the sound of the crash cymbals, but Rob is not hitting them (he hits one at the end) Another example from the MTV EMAs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-w93z_nhm2o Pay attention to 1:29 to 1:31 He hits the ride cymbal first, and then the crash cymbal, but you never hear the sounds coming from them, as if they were muted or something. What do you all think?
