    You can simply right click and download all those audio tracks (as .ogg files) if you want to keep them for a HTDA playlist like I have :P

    Brilliant idea. Makes you realize they're not just sitting there meticulously inserting each sound one at a time. No they're playing back a collection of sounds and loops that have already been recorded.

    That's from 2010 and it's also just what he does.

    Who knows what instrument Rob used in the music video for Ice Age? I'm talking about the big box/computer looking thing with the old school screen; the instrument making the high pitched ringing/droning sound.

    i can't seem to find the interview, but i remember him or trent mentioning exactly what it was at some point. mayhaps someone with stronger googling skills than i should tackle this. or @sheepdean probably knows.

    What if he's just "looking busy" and "turning that knob that does nothing"?

    I think even if you started with 0 musical talent, working alongside Trent+crew for over a decade would mean you'd know more than how to just pretend to use a synth :P

    I'm pretty sure he was referencing the leaked audio from the 2013 rehearsals

    "How Long?" sounds so 90s but so current at the same time, it's impossible not to like it!

    Really? You think it sounds 90's? Wow I never got that impression. To me it sounds quite modern because of it's hi-fidelity.

    High fidelity audio has existed for decades though

    i think the comment was more about style than sound quality.

    they used How Long during the NBA playoffs last year (or was it the year before?)

    Whenever it came out, you know.

    I only heard it on one commercial, one time, but i thought it was really dope.


    edit: oh...i tried to search for it and i already mentioned that here in april of 13.
    GawdDAMN time flies.

    you guys talking about the song made me think about it.

    That's true, but I don't know if you can say the 90's was notoriously known for being high-fi. Most of the 90's music I've heard was from Depeche Mode, well, NIN of course, and grundge like Nirvana and other stuff like The Cure, which was pretty lo-fi, and the weird lo-fi alternative stuff from This Mortal Coil, etc.

    I agree he was probably talking about style. but even style/composition, I still don't see it. I would be curious to know what songs he might affiliate himself with when hearing How Long.

    Grunge isn't an antonym to hi-fi. It simply means High Fidelity: that is, the audio produced through your monitors is very faithful to the original recording. There are musicians who intentionally produce Low-Fi (Anal Cunt for example), but no mainstream artist could do that and hope for radio play.

    the piano chords/vocal melody that open the song are very stylistically linked to a lot of the pop of the mid-late 90s, a la britney spears, christina aguilera, backstreet boys, etc.
    the song, to me, sounds like a great mash-up of that pop style with HTDA's usual fare. so i freakin' love it.

    Wrong one. xfocalinx is talking about the TOIOU project, and there have been no updates since May 2014. Vaporware, just like the Dresden Dolls project. No surprise there.

    I believe ninlive was posting screenshots of the video on twitter over the weekend. Maybe not a vaporware as one would think. Of course I'm assuming. Better to ask him and I can't tag him from tapatalk.

    Huh. I was basing that on browsing through TOIOU's Twitter feed, so I'm just straight up wrong, probably. That's good to know, at least.
