  1. i have never seen anything like that! is all that really necessary tho!?

    timbo + bus studio < 9th + laptop & fl studio

    • exactly what i was thinking. i means its crazy dope all the shit hes got but is it really necessary?

    • Apples and oranges. The bus is a PRODUCTION studio. Fruity Loops & Laptop is a CREATION studio. You still have to take that laptop to a studio to get it mixed down, compressed, and “printed.” DJ Toomp uses Reason on his laptop like nobody’s business but still has to plug into his studio’s board to finish it.

  2. no its not necessary but sonically there is a huge difference between a timbo album and 9ths, not necessarily because of fl but that signal chain is ridic. Regardless i would give up a firstborn for that mic and does anyone know why you would want to bypass the master fader to record to the cdr ???

    • Being able to bypass the master fader is cool because you may be doing an interview or something else in the bus and not need to hear the “booming system” while recording the CD-R or he may want to crank it up for artist, but now it will have no effect on the CD-R that is burning. I think it is more like a Control Room/Headphone mix that works in reverse. But to me, the greatest advantage is you never have to worry about changing the settings to the CD-R signal chain. Some serious thought about the signal chain went into that bus before hand, which is smart.

  3. Well, 9th still does use Fl Studio on occasion,but he graduated to the MPC 2500 and Pro Tools . So I think Timbaland graduated to a higher standard of recording than what he used to have . He has a certain sound that he wants, and sometimes it takes a little more to get it. It`s all evolution. In order to grow,we must change. So he might have tricks that he uses that might require him to use that technology.

  4. straight cash homie. that’s too much. tim is not even in the same league as 9th, he’s levels beyond in regards to the bigness of sound i.e signal path. And that shit as just a fuck around on the road rig???!!!! get out of here. 7 x-racks? Damn. Why would 9th’s name even come up after watching that?

  5. I’m no eco maniac, but at 5.28 ‘energy efficient’ is not a term i would use to describe this bus lol…

  6. any music head knows the diff between timbo & 9th. timbo is a household producer name after all.

    @ jake; i put 9ths name in there in the contest of portability. like ibn said the equipment is nice and all. thats a real dope bus! but if i had to choose a portable production setup, it would be a laptop + FL. I said 9th + FL cause he set a bar for producing gems with that combination imo.

    • Remember, Timbo is producing entire records including vocals, stems, etc., on that bus, while 9th is usually producing BEATS on his laptop that others are putting their mark on. I don’t think Jay Z recorded his vocals to “Threat” on 9ths laptop using a USB Mic. LOL!

  7. that is just crazyyy … gold plated u87 .. haha man is all that necessary … “is it necessary to drink your own urine .. NO But i do it anyway cuz I like the taste and its sterile “

  8. talk about chillin’ by the lake with the family and friends…

    He’s got a dope fckin’ mobile studio!

    Nice to see what he’s investing in.

    peace.

  9. Timbaland Says He’s Done With Hip Hop, When asked by MTV.com why he’s abandoned his roots he said he’s completely finished producing tracks for hip hop artists, insisting the genre is “just not the same” anymore. nice tour bus though…………….

    • then why did is he producing a track for drakes new album, 50 cents new album, the games new album and diddys new album?

    • He’s gotta pay for that bus somehow…if 50 comes knockin’ on the door with a check for 250k and asks for a hit, I don’t think he is gonna say “no”

  10. cant count the amount of pausable moments from homey talkin!! LOL

    “This gloss is sexy, just feel it”
    “The lights have a taste the rainbow kinda vibe”
    “The mood has to be sexy when you walk in, Timbo can just walk in and pull his tool out”

    LMAO!!! Wow, (no solar)

  11. IM GLAD TO SEE THIS. TIMBALAND IS SMART TO INVEST IN SOMETHING THATS HE CAN REAP REWARDS FROM WHILE ON THE GO LIKE THAT . A LANDSCAPER CAN CUT GRASS WITH A PUSH MOWER BUT INSTEAD HE WOULD BE WISER TO BUY A WALK BEHIND YA DIG ? ID RATHER SEE THIS THAN A CUSTOM HUMMER WITH YOUR NAME IN THE INTERIOR lol I AIN’T MAD .
    VA ALL DAY !

    thats amazing that timbo bought all that for danja to make beats with”

    lmao i was about to comment the same exact shit until i read that

  13. I remember the bus I took from Stockholm on school class trip to Prague in 9th grade. Was a liiittle bit different.

  14. Yo homie giving the tour used some extremely gay rhetoric! lol He described the lighthing is “tast of the rainbow”, While explaining the room had to be sexy he said that “when Tim wants to pull out his tool”, and then he pulled out the keyboard. And then at the end he really sets it off by saying “rdiculous pounding” happens on the bus. Lol just some childish observations.

    lol

    VA stand up!
