how exactly do you use the axe fx with your DAW?
as an input device via usb, just like recording the signal of an interface
can you tolerate screaming in metal music?
love it, although same as singing - depends on the vocalist
how do you manage to compose well, when its just a hobby. Im an EE student who wants to get good at music
putting a lot of time and thought into it, glad you think so!
since when do you play guitar?
about 10 years now
when are you going to make more music? and are you ever going to release a tab for any song?
in the process! and i have no plans to but you never know haha
PLINI Y U SO AWESOME like seriously your jazzy stuff and your metal stuff and urgh your whole guitar playing is just so good i mean i can't even speak coherent english anymore STOP BEING SO AWESOME WAIT NO PLEASE BE AWESOME WE NEED MORE AWESOME IN THIS WORLD
haha! thank you :)))))
Do you mix with headphones or with speakers/monitors?
speakers for overall balance but i check details with headphones
Are you going to have real bass on the new ep?
Artwork guy again :) Did you ask him to put the little boy and girl in Sweet Nothings (that I just noticed now haha) and The End Of Everything? It's because I want to know if it's part of the story you imagined ^-^
i rarely need to ask alex something, he always knows.
Plini featuring the entire Dillinger Escape Plan band... that's the new album am I right
Is it much easier to record with axe fx2 than going with guitar directly in the mic input ? :D
only about a million times easier!
all of the above, including daddy cool!
Well it's just that I feel like the reason I improvise in a certain way isn't because of what I want to express but instead because I'm caged in my limited knowledge of harmony and scales. And I want to break free!! So yeah I'll keep jamming :)
and maybe learn some stuff by artists in the style you would like to be creating, see if that gives you any new techniques or harmonic/melodic ideas your fingers arent used to. all the best!
The supermarket plays Backstreet Boys, but they never play Plini. What the fuck is wrong with this post-apocalyptic world?!
backstreet boys is at least a step in the right direction away from most contemporary pop!
new ep takes too long youre fired
except actually, im not though
Hi Plini! What's up with the 5 DVDs of Superior Drummer? Do you only need disc 1 to Install the soundbank? If so, what's with the other 4 discs?
i think the main components and the program itself are on disc one and then additional samples are on the other 4 (you choose between a 5gb and a 20gb library upon install as far as i remember). but im not toontrack customer support so not sure why you would ask me??
Everybody likes Plini.
not yet. but eventually :)
what is your myers briggs type?
i dont know
Are you able to improvise in the same style as you write music? Or do you have to sit back, think and go into a different thought process when you actually want to compose? My issue is that I keep going into bluesy, jazzy licks when I improv but I don't want to write that type of music >.<
keep jamming, it'll come. why dont you wanna write what comes naturally to you though?
So I heard you plan on touring? How will you play live? Getting a band? Sample everything and just play the guitars ? ...
band. though i might not be able to straight away, ultimately i dont want to use any samples or backing tracks. even the transitions and lead-ins i want to be played live :)
Hi plini ! This is one of the principal question on this page i guess , but i hope you ask me anyway ... I'm a guitarist , and i'm trying to record stuff that i composed plugging guitar in a boss ms-50g pedal straight in my audio drive (roland duo capture ex) . any advice to get a good record?
if you can get a tone you like, all you have to do is capture it by pressing record and you're off to a good start :)
Do you ever go weeks or months where you don't play guitar or think of music all that much? It's happening to me in uni
yes, makes the times you do get to play more special though :)
still in the process of finding it!
