I did a search, but only saw some really old threads about Dirk Lance/Alex Katunich, so I thought I'd bring him up. I have been listening to more and more Incubus lately. S.C.I.E.N.C.E. has always been my favorite album by them, with Make Yourself and Fungus Amungus coming next, but I have liked their new music less and less. I think a lot of it has to do with Dirk being gone. I think Ben Kenney's role in the band now is waaaay more of a supporting role than Dirk ever was. Dirk's basslines were a big part of the songs. I think with Ben's stuff, you wouldn't notice as much if he weren't there. Basically, I like crazy Incubus. I still like Boyd's singing, Einziger's guitar solos are still sick on occasion. idk about the drummer or this new DJ, I don't notice them as much anymore... I just read that their first DJ left after science, so maybe that had something to do with it too... I was looking more into him on wikipedia and I found this: Katunich was an avid user of Warwick Streamer Stage II's (much like his contemporary P-Nut of 311), which included both fretted and fretless models. They were usually installed with active Basslines pickups and pre-amps. He has also used acoustic-electric basses at unplugged gigs and playing songs such as Mexico live, as well as on Wish You Were Here and a few other occasions he has dug out a red mid-60's Fender Jazz Bass. He has also used a Warwick Infinity NT, as seen in the video for "Drive".( just for the video, as he hasn't used it in live sessions ) For his career with Incubus he used Eden Amplification products. With his somewhat complicated setup, he would divide his sound 6 ways. Firstly, he would carry a clean signal and a 'dirty' signal. Each of these signals would further be separated 3 ways into low frequencies, low mids, and high mid frequencies. Usually Eden WT 100 preamps and WT 1000 power amps were employed. This results in two tri-amped signals, one clean and one with effects. Other gear in his setup included, but not limited to, were a Demeter Tube Compressor, a DBX 120 XP Sub-harmonic synthesizer, a Tech 21 Sansamp PSA-1, a custom switcher/router, a Boss PH-2 Super Phaser pedal, a MXR Phase 90 pedal, and an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff pedal. His use of effects seemed to decrease throughout his time with Incubus. He also used custom designed monitors powered by an Eden WT 80 poweramp. He has been quoted as saying "Everyone makes fun of how huge my rig is until they actually hear it. My tone makes people cry!" 6 Amps... thats friggin' ridiculous, but I like how he thinks. I really want to know what the fuzz/distortion he used on science was, particularly on songs like Nebula around 2:10. I don't think there is any way that is a Big Muff... Maybe... but I doubt it! Maybe I will do a search... I'm sure some of you have heard that before, but it's new for me. I think I had more to say, but I don't feel like reviewing this post any more... Point: I like Dirk!
