    Homework era live perfomance pictures/gear

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    Well I couldn't find a thread about this already but I am in need of some
    1996/1997/1998(?) pictures of live daft punk sets since I am obsessed
    with copying their equipment and their performance

    and if anyone could identify more gear that would be great (I have
    already read the previous gear thread multiple times :P)

    These are the ones that I have now


    Uploaded with ImageShack.us


    This one is pretty good at explaining but as you can see, there are 6
    units in the rack and only 5 are listed, also there is another rack unit on
    the right side in the first picture, and two pedals which aren't listed (even though
    one of course is distortion). One of their rack units is the behringer composer
    but it doesnt say which (2000,2100, or 2200) so if anyone knows that would be great



    Here you can see they switch to a mackie cr1604


    A random internet source gave me these pieces of gear as their live setup
    However the pictures don't match. I know the switched up their setups though
    but that's why more pictures would be nice!

    Tr-909, Tr-808, Tr-606, Tb-303, Mc-202, LinnDrum, Juno-106, Alesis MMT-8, Mackie Mixers, EM-U sp-1200, Alesis Microverb 3, Midimoog (minimoog rack with midi), Roland S-760, Behringer Composer, Alesis 3630, Roland sbx-80, Korg Z1, Doepfer Drehbank, Syntecno TEEBEE, Evlution Mk-149, Lexicon Vortex, Lexicon JAMMAN


    THANKKKSSS

    I knew they used a Juno 106! They used some kind of distortion petal too for the "Rollin 'n' Scratchin" part.

    I only saw the TB-303 once in all of those pictures, but they are hard to read/in french, so i may have missed it. Where does it say that they used Pro Tools?

    They had the most amazing equipment back then. I love their set ups live, Wether it be turn tables or 909's and 808's, it's gonna be amazing. I wish they would go back to the late 90's style of live shows. Yes Alive 2007 was mind blowing. But Music and mixing wise, 1997 was a lot better.

    Some say they use a 606 though and that could easily be confused with a 303
    I am not sure if they used a 303 for da funk in the live setup or if they used a clone

    At their even further gig though they do do a little bit of acid but again I can't see a 303

    so pictures would be great

    Its in the wrong key, but that doesn't matter. That was awesome, Aguy! What effects did you use for the distortion?

    Hmm, I was doing it by ear so that's understandable

    and nothing, just distortion
    I have a lexicon vortex there but I am waiting on the power supply

    rollin and rock n roll are actually pretty simple songs. Rollin n scratchin is just one note held down while they play with the resonance and frequency while rock n roll is the same with just two changing notes notes and lfo

    burnin should be simple too, havent played around with it yet

    Aguy-

    I'd say the images you have speak for themselves insofar as DP's early live setup was constantly evolving: for instance, I'd never seen the latter pic with the MSQ and Mackie 1604. Furthermore, I remember Thomas mentioning the Mackie MS1202 (the model which, incidentally, I also inherited as a teenager) in an interview, and he was extremely adament about using the original model when he was elaborating on DP's whole "bricolage" approach. Yet, as we see, they soon upgraded. I even remember seeing pics of the 1202 VLZ before the 1604.

    Point is, their old live setup seems largely to depend on not only the tour, but the show in question. Due to his Dad's career in music, Thomas seems to have either inherited a ton of gear, or just constantly added to the DP arsenal. Whatever the case, don't kill yourself trying to determine a single setup, particularly since the images you used span about 3 years!
