How The Naked And Famous Use Trash 2:
Thom Powers: We owe the sound of the lead key line in "Young Blood" to Trash 2: The Wrecktifier fuzz setting has made its way onto countless TNAF recordings ever since. This same fuzz, on a milder setting, was also used to sharpen and elevate the lead key line during the chorus in our latest single, "Higher." I've even foregone traditional guitar techniques, treating a D.I. signal solely with Trash!
Aaron introduced me to iZotope ten years ago, and it’s been indispensable ever since.
Aaron Short: A favorite feature of Trash for us is its ability to run in Multiband mode. When distorting really big sounds, it’s important to be able to treat each frequency range separately as they all react so differently. When working with a whole drum buss for example, we would subtly apply Tape Saturation to the lows, Smooth Overdrive to the mids, and my favorite fuzz patch called Cracked Actress to the tops, all with a very gentle dry/wet mix (or sometimes stronger if we’re getting wild!).
