Smash Mouth – fun facts about sound check vid :-)
First off, make sure you watch this in hi res for full effect and keep the volume a bit lower since
you’re listening to STAGE volume…pretty loud 🙂
So here are a few funny things about this video –
You’ll see about 30 seconds in that I’m looking back at my rig. What I’m looking at is my RJM Effects Gizmo unit
to see if it’s getting MIDI and changing my sounds.
I see the unit isn’t getting my MIDI Program change commands so I call my awesome guitar tech Tyler Dragness
to come over. As he comes over, you can hear him sing “More baby” with me and crackin’ me up!
I tell him what’s going on and he goes to check it about a minute into the vid.
At about 1:22 I’m cheering up our Sound Engineer and Tour Manager Patrick Bojanic by chanting “Go Paddie, Go Paddie” into
my mic (you can’t really hear it, but HE can) 🙂
Around 1:35, I check that what Tyler did worked, and it did…apparently he had just put the MIDI cable into the output rather
than the input, causing a little mixup (as he tells me at 2:30).
At 1:59 I royally screw up and make a stupid face 😛
And that’s about it folks 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the insight into the sound check and hearing “Can’t Get Enough of You baby” in a more…special way.
Also, for those who like the info, I’m using my Blonde Shabat Guitar (My model) that has some David Allen Pickups in it,
I gotta admit, I don’t remember which, Dave probably knows better than me haha.
You can see my awesome Red, 3D printed UE-RM In Ears in my ears. They are crystal clear and I have a few sets of them,
just in case 😉
The sound is a little harsh because of the #GoPro mic and the fact that it’s pointed at the amps 😛
Other than that, if ya have any more questions, feel free to ask me!
