    I'm working of comprising a playlist of sounds with Delay, and this is what i've got so far.

    Rage Against the Machine - No Shelter
    Tool - Pu****
    Tool - The Grudge
    Tool - Disposition
    Tool - Flood

    As you can see, I haven't searched through my library that much. I'm open for many suggestions! :)

    EDIT: Haha look at the song Push!t. Crazy edits.

    I'm a huge Primus fan, and I will try finding some songs. I haven't noticed any on the Frog Brigade nor Oysterhead, but then again I only have 4 songs from each band.

    Does anyone else thing there's a really short slapback delay on "My Name is Mud"?

    There is some delay on the purple onion CD. Les also uses delay on oysterhead a lot with his filters. Plus most of the songs on Primus "Animals should not..." CD

    I think there may be a slight slapback on my name is mud, but he also double hits the strings to give it that sort of feel, so I'm not 100% sure if an actual delay is used.

    Mmm, I don't think so. American Life is dry. The Delayed effect is the G ringing out.

    In an interview, Claypool said Eclectic Electric was the first song he ever used delay and liked it, so it was his first delayed recording. He aparently really liked it, because he uses it way too much sometimes.

    Ha that's true. He uses a weird delay on that song doesn't he? It's like triplet delay or something. Anyone have an idea for what setting I should use? I'm gonna try the Dotted quarter note, but I dont' know if it'll work.

    EDIT: I've tried a bunch of settings, and I can't seem to get it. Any suggestions?

  17. I just listened to the album version again and it does sound dry actually. Maybe I'm thinking of the live version on Hallucino Genetics?

    How about "My Friend Fats" for a delay song?

    Yessir. The whole Animals CD has Delay except for Pilcher's Squad.
