Justice's live rig?

Post by dthestampede » Mon Dec 17, 2007 5:07 am

know i'm pretty sure anybody looking at this probably read about justice's studio set-up. which according to them is quite minimal. not quite sure i believe its as minimal as they claim. now if you youtube their live footage they perform form behind a behemoth mess of electronics c**p, most of which is on the ground and not usable in any performance sense. i callin B.S. and its all a stage prop to fool newbies and novices. can anyone identify that mess?

p.s. a second reason i believe it to be a prop. they perform in front of stacks of marshall cabs, also i believe unused as that would degrade the audio quality. bass cabs maybe, guitar cabs.. i doubt it
I am infected with noises in my brain, the sound of pain and it is constant. Soon I will release music so horrible that hopefully you too will be infected. Slayer, wolf eyes, johnny cash, justin timberlake f**king rock!

:lol: Have you listened to the album? The audio quality is pretty freakin degraded. :lol:

Anyway, they're all props and the music comes off a laptop. I don't think they're trying to fool people, they're just trying to make their show look interesting. I've also heard that Daft Punk's music would sound the same if they weren't inside a pyramid.

justice live is basically just gaspard and xavier with ableton, triggering loops and what not, the whole setup isnt made too fool anyone, its just part of their mystique, ya know? and the sound isnt coming out of the amps, if you want ill ask, i know someone who could tell me

and ive seen daft punk live, theres a live aspect to it for sure, not to mention theyve got 4 voyagers with them i the pyramid and they do use the voyagers mostly for signal processing and filters, regardless, still the craziest live show ive ever seen

yeah I saw them at Øya festival this summer, and all they did was smoking cigarettes and turning a knob or two once in a while. rest of the time they were just groovin' to the music, so I doubt you could call it "live" as i think it was all playback run through a mixer/multi-effects-box or whatever.
Also, I remember being much more impressed with Premieklovn's band (Monomen), who had a bunch of analogs (uhm, a Juno, MS10/20, prodigy, 707 and a JX?), and even those strictly 80's drum pads to be played standing :) Great show, a lot more interesting than justice in my opinion :)

hmr, a little off subject here, but I was just so little impressed with justice. Playback is NOT cool live!! atleast I think they should have something to play live over the playback, cause looking at two stoned guys turning the same two knobs for an hour is just.. boring...

that's my way of saying ... not bad music ... but just too commerical for me to really connect with.

reminds me of that grocery scene in the movie "go." except that was reggae, wasn't it?

anyway, i do like justice, though i skip the tracks with vocals and i'm not a fan of people who use nothing but a laptop live.

s**t man. i was at øya too, but not on justice's day. i'm sorry i missed that.

but if you are bored with justice, i think you are approaching it wrong. if i saw them live i would spend my time dancing rather than watching them.

For some reason, that is making me laugh hard :lol: :lol: :lol: That's really funny.

But Justice basically have their laptops and mixer going through a focusrite preamp. I went to go to the stage when I saw them and noticed they couldn't be using all that and then saw a small 8 rack setup of outboard gear on the side of that hugh mess.
