Linkin Park’s New Studio (Video)

January 22, 2011

A big shout out to Avid for the new ProTools 9 software.  This is the first time ProTools has ever been this portable, and we love it.  Phoenix and I made a demo on the 10 minute drive to the venue tonight using my laptop, PT9, an AKAI MPK Mini, and Kontakt (by Native Instruments).

EDIT: Sorry if some of you had problems watching it–the video took some time to upload.  Side note: how awesome is it that I worked a song in the car, then posted the video from my phone as we walked into the venue?  I love technology.

    Oh my gosh, that’s about the most banging thing I’ve ever seen in my life.

    I’m really glad you men have this as consolation after the fact that Stephanie Meyer noted LP’s music as a frequent inspiration for the Twilight series. Trufax. Wikipedia never lies, obviously.

    …no, but srsly, ProTools is freaking epic, and this video made me so happy.

    True, we all love technology but do not deny it, the best is the Gameboy.

    ProTools sucks. For your next album, try something different and record your album with an analog tape recorder.

  13. riachen on January 24, 2011 at 11:29 am

    “We´re here in the new studio…in the car”, Haha Mike you´re genius. By the way, awesome sound. ;-)

    great mike , seems u guys r having fun , so when is this demo out :D ;)

  16. faintypainty on January 23, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    I think that it was too short, your style is also too fast, so work on beging more slowly and longer!

    Your car looks like a studio, okay, that means you are a workaholic?

    Hello Mike! I’m sure you are pretty tired of obsessive fans trying to personally contact you. But, to start, I’m not obsessive. But I think it’s safe to say I am one of your biggest fans. In the whole world, you are the number one person I look up to. You are my number one role model. Your whole band is, by my definition, the epitome of concentrated creativeness, hard-work, personal sacrifice, and personal achivement. I am 15 and Linkin Park is my favorite band, because your music says what I would never be able to put into words. You have inspired me to begin creating my own music. You and your music have taught me a lot. I would truly appreciate a response. I understand if you don’t.

    Mike, I’ve found a phrase that you can use for your new super single:
    “Colourless green ideas sleep furiously”. :D

  30. juliii22arg on January 23, 2011 at 7:05 am

  63. EpicLinkinPark on January 22, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    I got the Service Error as well, but I bet it is really awesome. I think it’s so awesome of you guys to show us the studio and tell us how everything works and what the process is to make upcoming albums. I always wondered what it would be like to be in a studio and the process is like to make an album. I just wanted to thank you guys for showing all of us. I hope the tours have been going good so far and I wish you guys all the best. Hope all is well with you guys and take care. :] See you guys Feb. 23rd!
    Best Wishes,
    Kate
