    Here's a video from 2010 that just came through my facebook newsfeed. Maybe I need to get out more, but it's the first time I've seen Tosin playing a six string. I love the arrangement.

    I know this has probably been answered elsewhere, so sorry that I cannot find it now. I know Tosin said for the first album they just took the guitar track and dropped it down an octave for the bass track on the album. I am just wondering how AAL can reproduce this live. :hbang:

    They have a bass backing track and play along to a click.

    Which I honestly don't know why they don't just find a bassist. Maybe cost?

    I'd be absolutely terrified of messing up, and the backing track obviously not being able to correct itself. Happened to White Zombie at the MTV Movie Awards, and it makes the group just sound retarded. And I know there have been click track/backing track problems at Devin Townsend shows. Honestly, I'd rather see a slightly stripped down version of a band rather than have too many backing tracks.

    I think Tosin has said it's more of a bass sine. But yeah, they play with a backing track to provide the low end.

    They have a backing track with Bass, synth, extra guitar parts (doubles and harmonies) and some of the electric glitchy drums.

    I remember hearing/reading in an interview that not having a live bassist hasn't affected them in any way, so they had no pressing need to get one. And if they did get one, Tosin said they would probably try to get Evan Brewer to fill in.

    Seeing them live a couple times, I honestly didn't feel that anything was lacking without them having a bassist. Why come up with a solution to a nonissue?

    I would have to agree that after seeing them live a number of times there was nothing lacking or missing with regard to bass lines or in general. If it's not broke don't fix it......lol

    :shred:

    I think it depends on the album/song. Like on Weightless, they had no bassist in their studio, and Navene was there and is obviously proficient with synth stuff, so it made sense to synthesize the bass. Basically they used Massive to create a synth sound that had hardly any higher-order harmonics present, and by extension, rather unnoticeable transients.

    On TJoM I think that for most of the important bass parts Nolly just played them. So their backing track live would include the recordings of Nolly playing the parts.

    I am pretty sure that Nolly cleared this up himself and said he played bass on only a few songs and that the majority was once again synth bass. It is on this very thread right before or after the album came out.

    Nolly played bass on Lippincott, Tooth and Claw, and Para Mexer. The rest of the album was Trilian

    bumpity, but man, today I got to see Tosin in a guitar clinic here in Chile and it was just mindblowing. Latin America always tends to fall behind and be late in regards new music, and I guess I understand it, as it's not like in Europe or 'Murica where you can tour many different locations in just a few hours on a bus, so it's a huge expense for a foreigner band to play here.
    Tosin's presentation was impecable and inspiring :)

    here is a little clip he posted with the crowd that gathered in the theater
