Muse Live Sounds Thread

Starting this thread for tabs or tips on how to achieve some of the live sounds that the band achieve, or live versions of any songs that people want to learn.

Gonna start this one off by asking about a sound that is repeated once Matt has tuned his guitar down an octave on his D string on Stockholm live at Wembley on HAARP. There is a sound that I can only assume is produced by Chris that repeats a few times until the end, and it sounds like a 'yeoww' sound with a decreasing pitch, and is very grainy. I love this sound and was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how it is produced (effects, techniques, etc).

Thanks, and lets hope this thread is helpful to many!

I've only got the CD version here, but if it's the sound I'm hearing, that's the string tuned down + the harmonic mode on the sustainer.

Not entirely sure we're hearing the same sound here. It plays underneath Matt. Almost sounds like a synth or something but my best bet would probably be some fuzz on the bass. Thanks though

Is it in this video? If so, at what time?



I imagine it's something Morgan is doing. He's usually on stage during this song.

There seems to be limited information about what he uses (let alone the exact effects) but you might want to start here

Yeah around 7:13 I can hear it a bit. It is quite low in the mix, and if possible bass boosting on the video may be required. That was my other thought, it is very possible that it may be Morgan that's making the sound.

If we're thinking of the same thing, it just sounds like Chris smacking the bass randomly with loads of fuzz and Morgan doing some synth magic.

EDIT: all the "omg psycho" comments on that video

If its the sound that you can hear again right around 7:42 then its definitely a synth of some sort. It does sound like it could be chris playing through one of the Deep impact's settings (like the weird little frog thing he does in sunburn for example) or just morgan smashing some notes on an actual synth.

I would suggest it's the deep impact, based on hearing a similar sound in some earlier pre Morgan gigs.

What do you mean? He plays the solo the same way live as it is in the studio, except with a few mistakes because even Matt Bellamy isn't perfect

At some gigs he alters the entire ending; but I think it starts off as a fuckup he's covering up.

Yeah exactly.



The end of the build up (around 2:35) seems like it was intentional, as he does that sort of thing in his playing pretty often. Not sure if it's done like that at every gig, but the rest seems like a nice little extension for the original solo

Just playing the D Harmonic scale in descending manner rather than ascending

Also the little fuck up cover up bit in the build of that exact performance is him just moving chromatically and realising it sounds bad haha

Can't really tell hearing it on my phone, but is the studio version of the solo playing in the background in that video?

New question:
In the invincible solo live at Wembley

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxXtQmy0RZY (Around 4:37)

I was wondering, is Matt using 2 fingers to tap on his right hand? It sounds like there is more to it than just tapping with the whammy then leaning off for the trilling to me, and it definitely looks like it. It doesn't seem to be present with every set of taps/trills but it just seems to sound different than the way that I have learnt it.

Thanks.
