    Combination of fretless, flatwound strings, envelope and octave it seems.

    Saw em live in November. I'm not even a huge fan of the new stuff, but it was still an experience along the lines of angels massaging your gentlemen's bits.

    Flats you think?

    Yeah envelope and OC-2 seems quite plausible. I'm pretty sure I saw a DiscumBOBulator on his NIN board, he definitely had one on his board for the Quadrophenia tour. He also used a Deep Impact and a EHX Bass Micro Synth with The Who so those shouldn't be ruled out either.
  5. WOW!

    Very nice bass ... is there anything this man can't play?

    That backdrop though, I got the start of a headache just from watching this on my iPad, I guess I would have had a seizure if I'd watched that live. :)

    Unreal! Just drives home why he's my favorite all time bass player. The man can play anything.

    And kudos to Trent Reznor for going the extra mile to hire a world-class rhythm section. He could have easily just programmed the beats and bass (like he has sometimes done in the past). The way that the bass guitar and drumset coexist with the backing tracks (and the way the live rhythm section and backing tracks compliment eachother) in the live arrangement is truly awesome.

    And kudos to Pino for the extra little bump in the filter during the guitar solo! Barely noticeable, but it's the tiniest things that make the difference. (Like that one single chorus towards the end where he abandons the repeating bass pulse and plays the descending root progression... Oh man! Killin!!) it's the tiny details that make this truly great music.

    I saw them live here in Montreal this past october, it was AWESOME! Crazy lights all over the place.
  9. Just watched that clip and man, now I wish I had gone to that show! I gave the album a couple of spins and didn't quite like it, but obviously it sounded effing HUGE live! I'll catch them next time around for sure (regardless of how thin the record sounds!).

    I think I remember reading somewhere that he puts Labella flats on his Pbasses but rotosound rounds on his Musicman and his Jaguar but I could be wrong about that

    He's mentioned in old interviews that he used light RotoSound rounds on the Stingray, regular Rotosounds on his Jaguars, although on the most recent Who tour, he's been using Black Beauties on his Jaguar. TI flats on his '61 and signature P basses and heavy La Bella flats on his '63 P bass (which is tuned DGCF). After a few more listens it sounds like he's using flats with his Stingray now too.

    Ah black beauties, used em a few times they're great strings! This vid def sounds like it could be flats I agree...

    Whatever it is, this is great bass!
  13. Agreed ... long-term Pino fan, recent NIN (w/ Pino :D) fan.

    Thanks for the link to this! Pino's one of my favorites and this is great.
    The other clips are equally impressive.

    His playing is completely unobtrusive but he has some really tasty fills. Not stepping on any toes at all and super funky.

    Fantastic, thanks for posting this. Ended up watching the whole show.

    That's why I was surprised. With pino it seems like Trent is having him play bass line which were previously only done with synth.
