Prodigious...

by Chris Randall
 



One of our good Audio Damage friends is Jon Burton. He does live FOH sound for, among many other acts, Prodigy. One of the interesting things he does is use Live as an effects rack for Prodigy's live show, and he uses a lot of Audio Damage stuff. Whether you like them or not, Prodigy is quite experimental, and Jon uses our effects during the live show to, I assume, really fuck shit up. The above photo shows Dr. Device getting a workout during the show.


He just told me that lately he's been using Replicant on lead vox, which is unnerving.


In any event, you know we don't normally go in for celebrity endorsements (in actual fact, if someone writes me and says "I'm famous and you should give me your stuff for free" I usually write back with "if you're so fucking famous, you can afford to buy a god-damned $29 plugin, so tell your story walking...") and we won't be issuing a press release saying "Prodigy use Audio Damage plugins on tour..." or anything, mainly because that sort of shit is lame. I just think it's fairly cool and forward-looking what Jon is doing, and worth mentioning here.

I used Replicant extensively on the vocals on an album I did back in February. It is amazing for that.

I also used it on effects returns - very tasty on reverb.

I had no idea Prodigy was still touring. I figured they'd retired, since they must have made a pretty penny in the 90s. Personally, I think something like Audiomulch or Bidule would work better as an effects rack host, but to each his own.

And be careful, you might start getting emails that say "Hi, I'm not famous and have no money, can I get a free plugin now?"

I read about Burton using AD plugins for Prodigy a while back.. I could have sworn he said AD plugs are the ONLY ones he would use live.

It became trendy to slag the Prodigy off because they didnt deliver a predictable 'remix rock' album last time...which only made me like them more.
