The Vertical Extraplater is a custom black box that makes the mix sound higher and deeper than anything you've heard before.

Just kidding! Steve and I made up a bunch of nonsense in a tech interview during the first Garbage album, and they printed it.

I wish such a box actually existed!

Hahaha!!

Did you ever use it during an A&R drop-by in the midst of a session?

"Butch, this sounds great but, I dunno, it needs a little something."

"Ok... (patches in the black box)... how about THIS?"

"AWESOME!" jkthtyrt
