It's for levels and EQ. You pronounce the two as "tszu" to check the sibilance. I normally throw in a "bacon porridge" for plosives, and "hey, HEY" for dynamic range. Sometimes ill just pick a Wikipedia page and read from it.

Whoops! Forgot monitors. You normally do the whole "check, 1, 2" routine to test the monitors and FOH for feedback and you'll typically operate at higher gain than you would use for show, to make sure that if someone asks for more mic in their monitor they won't start ringing like quasimodo on a coke bender.

You have picked up a bad habit and really need to re-educate yourself on how to properly operate a clutch.
#16 - jinhasda (07/02/2016) [-]
Actually, what Umppis says is correct, that is what they teach you now for holding the car on a hill, hell when i had my test i got tested for it, i think its because they had too many people being unable to actually hold the car without resorting to having to use the handbrake and then performing a hill start, though they also test for that too, its all about efficiency and the flow of traffic these days though.

#138 - weeirdaboo (07/04/2016) [-]
or you can just do a hill start with foot break and clutch
#67 - Killeratdawn (07/02/2016) [-]
What country do they teach you to hold your car still on a hill with your clutch? I passed my test last year and was told to use my handbrake when i came to a stop at all times unless no one is behind me in which case i'd use my brake pedal. (I'm from England)
#100 - anon (07/02/2016) [-]
Pfffff you can also onnly use the brake you just need balls of steel and after a while you'll get used to the ninjalike speed you need to make it even with someone 2mm behind you. But then again I'm used to driving Italy in the mountains.
#82 - creator incarnate (07/02/2016) [-]
They teach you this in (at least) Belgium (and as far as I know from friends in the surrounding countries too).
It's part of the standard driving test, it's actually the first thing they made me do on my driving test.
The reason they teach this (as far as I know) is to prevent roll-back when starting on a hill with another car behind you.
You're already on the balance point to get the car moving, so al you need to do is play with the peddals to give it some gas and release the clutch slowly. As opposed to releasing the brake peddal and having to move your foot to the gas peddal, which allows the car to move backward.

Wait, what would Belgium know about hill starts anyways?
#115 - Killeratdawn (07/02/2016) [-]
If you use the handbrake both of your feet are free to do what you want. just seems like shitty practice to me. Not to mention the massive amounts of damage you'll cause to your clutch from doing so.
#116 - creator incarnate (07/02/2016) [-]
"Massive ammounts of damage"
Where did you get that from, I've know people who used this method there entire live and have had the same car for more than 10 years without any problems with the clutch
User avatar
#139 - weeirdaboo (07/04/2016) [-]
because friction clutch dont like big sloop

It is not so fatal as if side 2 of the clutch is blocke and side 1 gives full power with the motor, because they stand partially on the clutch. By this they Lower the friction between the two sides, but it is still generates more wear and more heat than beeing in neutral gear.
This is also damages the bearings of the clutch (i dont know how this bearing is called in english, the one that holds the moving side)

Depending on your clutch, they do not like heat, but newer car clutchs wont burn out as fast

While beneficial to the flow of traffic, it's still wrong. I'll take an extra second or two to get going vs burning my clutch up any day.

#27 - shameonapony (07/02/2016) [-]
The idea is to stop you from having to lift your foot off the brake and hit the accelerator and risk rolling back into the car behind you.

That's how they teach you to do it, and it's the proper, safe way.

It's not any more damaging to the clutch than normal use.
User avatar
#50 - coolwearm (07/02/2016) [-]
cant you just hold your foot on the break, then when the light is about to turn green press the clutch, put it in first, bring right up to the catch point then right as the light turns green engage the clutch to not roll and then move your foot to the accelerater or at least thats what i do
#62 - naiks (07/02/2016) [-]
If you do this in a petrol car you won't have enough power at idle to keep the revs up and the car will stall and you will roll back. In a petrol to stay standing on a hill you need a bit of gas as well so that the car doesn't stall

#66 - toosexyforyou (07/02/2016) [-]
And yet people prefer manual? Right.... lets not pretend that you're not driving manual to prove you've got a big dick.

#65 - autoxx (07/02/2016) [-]
You need to find the balance point and juggle your rpm.
Once you get past the speed the engine will lug, then you should be off the clutch asap.
Minimal wear is the only way to get maximum service life.
#91 - naiks (07/02/2016) [-]
Yep, much easier to do in a diesel since they idle with higher rpm and hence more torque
#129 - autoxx (07/02/2016) [-]
It takes less finesse.
You get better at the juggle with a sportbike.
The inline 4 has very little torque because of such a short piston stroke. That'll teach you how to feather the throttle.

#29 - jdogtwoptzero (07/02/2016) [-]
I can't believe how dumb you people are. If you can't properly start a manual on a hill without resting on the clutch the whole time, you really have no business operating said vehicle. It also tells me you have very little knowledge about the inner workings of the vehicle. But, you know what, you're the one that's going to keep paying the mechanic to replace your burned up clutch every few thousand miles, not me. That, or you're just a bunch of trolls and I'm an idiot for taking the bait.
#30 - shameonapony (07/02/2016) [-]
As an ASE certified mechanic who has owned 3 seperate manual vehicles and only needed to replace the clutch in one because it was a used car

You're an idiot if you don't understand how you're supposed to start a car on a hill.

There's a difference between thinking your cool and starting it like a retard and doing it the way you're supposed too.

You can't pretend like you have any idea what you're talking about forever.

I recommend some water to hydrate yourself and balance out your sodium levels.

#31 - jdogtwoptzero (07/02/2016) [-]
Seriously, I want to see you actually say it's okay to rest your car on the clutch on a hill while you're waiting to start moving again. I mean, if that's the case then why bother taking your foot off the brakes too while you're at it. If you can just drag the clutch all willy nilly without dramatically shortening its life span, then I guess you can do the same with your brakes too. I mean the principal between the two is the same right?

Do you work at a garage? If so can you tell me which one and where? I want to know so in the off chance I actually need a mechanic to do some repairs for me I can stay the fuck away from you.
#32 - shameonapony (07/02/2016) [-]
You clearly misunderstand the action being explained.

Since you are too stupid to understand the concept of how you are supposed to rest your car on a hill, maybe you shouldn't drive manual.

Look at all the text you're sending me, you know too much salt can kill you, right?
User avatar
#33 - jdogtwoptzero (07/02/2016) [-]
No, no I understand just fine. I just didn't think they'd let any old clown get ASE certified. Then again, there are plenty of shitty garages and mechanics out there. I guess common sense isn't a requirement. Troll or not, I don't like seeing misinformation spread like this.

Hopefully anyone reading this realizes this is the wrong way to operate a manual vehicle. Riding the clutch will seriously shorten its life span. I'm out
#108 - slickey (07/02/2016) [-]
I completely agree with you on all points. Don't let yourself get agitated by faggots who never drove stick in the first place
#64 - autoxx (07/02/2016) [-]
If they do that, I'd like to see the 'tards try to double clutch...

They'd sure never drive MY car.
Hell, it pisses me off when people sit at a light holding the clutch pedal in and it's only a little extra wear on the throw-out bearing.

#53 - greyhoundfd (07/02/2016) [-]
Holy fuck, I drive automatic and even I know that using the clutch to hold still is awful for the car.

This isn't a preference thing. It's not like using two feet for the pedals where, you know, it's unconventional and not a great idea but you won't kill yourself. Clutch holding will burn out your transmission and you will wreck your car. It might not do it in that instance, it might not do it in a year, but if you use your clutch as a brake, you are guaranteeing that your car will be ruined when you try to sell it.

God, what pisses me off even more is that anyone would ever teach someone specifically to do this rather than teach them to use all the pedals effectively. It's like teaching someone they can drive through a stop sign without stopping if no one's there, or that the speed limit can be ignored when there are no cops. Yeah, these are the easy ways to drive, but they're not the safe ones, and using the clutch to hold the car is one of the most dangerous things to do. My dad did that when he was a kid, the car starting smoking and he nearly rolled backwards down the hill.

"Holy fuck, I drive automatic and even I know that using the clutch to hold still is awful for the car."

Wow, you simply know this... Gee that means you must be right about everything, this certainly isn't the sam circlejerk logic the sjw's or fat acceptance movement's like to use.
User avatar
#122 - greyhoundfd (07/02/2016) [-]
Wow, it's almost like even though I drive automatic I know how to drive manual but simply prefer the other.
#123 - creator incarnate (07/02/2016) [-]
So, you if you 'know' how to drive manual have you ever blown a clutch then?
I never questioned if you knew how to, I simply don't care...
But claiming you 'know' something is simply not good evidence for proving that is the case.

I've never known it to happen with anyone I know, and since we all drive manual and are all taught to use the clutch for things like this (and tested on it for our drivers license) that would seem very improbable wouldn't it?
Or maybe it's just that we are actually taught the proper method to do it?
User avatar
#124 - greyhoundfd (07/02/2016) [-]
What's next, I shouldn't be trusted about how the steering wheel works because I "just know" that you turn it to change the direction of the car? You don't fucking hold your car using the clutch, it's awful for it and can ruin the car.
#39 - anon (07/02/2016) [-]
Considering a majority of my drive home is uphill, and I drive standard, my clutch should of been burnt out about 2 years ago. And it doesn't slip even a little.

P.S; Either drop a transmission and take out a clutch to see how it works (like I do, every. fucking. day) or shut the hell up.

Learn to use all three pedals at once, I don't want to smell your burning clutch.
