In praise of ADT

I'm a sucker for automatic double-tracking. It sounds like it happens a little on John A's vocals in "When it Rains..." and again with Kirk on "Shape song", but I don't know if that's intentional. I probably should know stuff like that.

I do know that bands are using it all the time now for "vocal enhancement" and it's becoming played out a bit, but it's such a simple and satisfying effect when used strategically. Like reverb or delay. I love it.

You know what else I love? Potato skins with bacon and sour cream.

Automatic Double Tracking is for Britney Spears. REAL Double Tracking is for real musicians.

I wish you guys would do it more!

It's auto-tuning that's really played out. That robot voice thing that allows singers who can't hit a pitch reliably to have recording careers.

Thanks for leading the charge, alphas!
