Welcome to the Tool Drive Project!

Welcome to the Tool Drive Project!  Here you will find many resources related to Tool's live concertography.


2020.12.30: Website and Drive stats are now available to every member!  After logging in you will find both options available in the main menu.  All stats update every 12 hours.  Enjoy!

2019.11.06:  So new shows are being added left and right.  For those syncing your drives, expect delays as quotas are met. For those of you trying to download shows via the download URL links, please let us know if there is any sort of issue in downloading, and try to be specific if possible.   Lastly, we hope you are enjoying these new recordings that have been released into the wild, and it would be greatly appreciated if you left a review after listening, give the rating and review system a try! And if you taped Tool and want to see your recording included on tooldriveproject.net we've made it super easy to upload it once and we'll handle the rest.  Just shoot us an email and we'll get you access.  

2019.09.02:  The new album is out, hopefully everyone has bought their copy (or copies) and are listening to it on repeat!  We have good news, in addition to streaming videos, we are now streaming the audio recordings as well!  Below the setlist on each recording's webpage, you will find an embedded player which will stream an mp3 version of the recording in question.  Special thanks to Chad and Jon for helping to make this happen, we needed some better streaming capabilities and a lot of coding to make this happen, and these guys stepped up!  Enjoy, and if you encounter any problems, be sure to send us a message.

2019.07.24:  At long last, video streaming is now available for video sources that the project has acquired over the years!  It was a long time coming, and was a serious undertaking, but you can now stream videos directly from the site.  If you see a status "Stream Only" and a camera icon while browsing sources, and you click on that source, you will find an embedded video that you can play (via YouTube).  Enjoy this new feature of the project, and let us know if you encounter any issues!  Also, to make navigation easier, we have removed confirmed/unconfirmed sources from the recordings page.  For the average user, this only made browsing confusing since you might be led to believe that there is a source for a certain date that was not actually on the drive.

2019.06.14: Lossy sources are all being moved to their respective year folders and eliminating the Lossy folder entirely.  Those of you using rclone to keep synced will not to do anything.  Similarly, in the near future we will also be eliminating all of the silver CD rips due to the fact that we have lower gen, or better sourced, versions of each recording the silvers are sourced from on the drive already.  If you want to keep copies of the silvers for your own personal collection, we suggest you copy them OFF the drive in the next week or two.  Once we delete them from the drive, rclone will come along and delete them from your drive next update cycle. As always, keep the recordings coming, and enjoy all the wonderful additions to the drive!

2019.05.18:  We have been slowly adding new sources to the drive.  Some of you may have noticed that your drives are not always syncing the new shows right away, this is due to high demand for download now that we have a substantial number of members all attempting to sync their drives at the same time.  Be patient, the new shows will get to your drives!  Also, still looking for some decent sources for the first show of this little tour, bring 'em on!

2019.05.08:  So a HUGE THANKS to Sevoflurane for sending the Project the first recording to surface for 2019!  Check the updates on the right, and get on this show ASAP!  For those of you with the rclone daily sync, it should magically appear on your drive next scheduled sync.  Cheers to all, and may many more shows soon follow!

2019.03.19:  The site is live!  For those of you with rclone set up correctly, send us an email with a username for the site and we will get the ball rolling on setting up an account for you.  Poke around the site, which is now DB driven, searchable, more interactive, and far more comprehensive than the previous installment. This has been a long time coming, and thanks goes out to Taylor and Jon for moving the upgrade to the site.  It has been a needed improvement to the project for many years, and has finally come to fruition!  As will all new sites, please poke around and if you find any problems, let us know!

2019.02.22: The new website is nearly complete, and will have many interactive user features.  The rclone process of obtaining a drive appears to be working wonderfully and instructions as to how to use rclone to keep your drive updated has been disseminated to interested members.  If you would like to know more, head to the contact page!

2019.02.17: Two new shows added to the drive, tests on the rclone update process were successful, expect to see instructions to interested members rolled out soon!

Rest in Peace Bjorn, you will be sorely missed. Your enthusiasm and passion for the project went well above and beyond the call of duty. Your friendliness and witty conversation will be missed. Everyone loved to have you onboard, and no one will ever take your place.
