New C.D. with a lot of synth/keys..


I post here every now and then.. and I thought you guys might like the new No Doubt cd entitled ROCK STEADY. It has some awesome synth and keyboard parts and sequences throughout every song. I have been a fan of this band for over 6 years and I cannot wait to see them in concert coming up.. If you can make to any of the shows, you should! There is an opening band - The Faint - whos music is mostly synth related - and it is very awesome.. Both bands use some vintage synths like jupiter 8s, and moogs, along with a lot of the newer stuff..
Lemme know what you think of this album.. i really love it..

Oh yes, no doubt that No Doubt's new CD is very good! I have been a fan for a long time as well. They recently played a surprise concert at my nephew's high school. How cool is that!?!?
I like the use of all the synths on the new CD. I'll have to check out The Faint as well.

I read that the song "hey Baby" uses a proteus2000 for the bass line. They use it live as well. The guitarist uses one of those Roland AX1's live.

Im glad you guys like the album.. Thanks for letting me know about the keyboard used in hey baby, ive wondered that for a while.. I think toms AX-1 is controlling steve's "emu-systems" but im not sure what kind of emu it is. Do any of you know?
