Gears and software
What gears/software did you use for this album ?In this album I used Reason 5 software, audition 5, "boss ve20" voice pedal and midi controllers. It happens that I live in France for a short time, I am Chilean and when I decided to come I had to sell my things.
Before I was a drummer in the band "cause of death", so I started from scratch again, little by little I am putting together my new artillery.
Your favorite gear(s)/software(s) ?
Any evolution in your setup ?
Do you use/tweak presets ?
Any personal synth story ?
What would be your main writing/composing method ? Do you start classical rythm/bassline then arrange around it ? Do you already have structure in mind ? Do you improvise, record sessions then select ?
We already know that inspiration occurs without looking for it. I generally like to create clean sounds from my drums and go through rhythms, arrangements or samples that I record.
For example, with glass bottles or pans for cooking, I add that to the final mix and I abide by the rhythm already created on drums, then I hum some melody and try to carry it out as close to reality and so little by little , although it is not always the same process.
Do you produce/mix in the box or do you use mainly external gears (effect/comp/eq...) ?
What is your most painful / enjoyable step in track production ? Sound design, arrangement, mixing, mastering ?
Nice is the moment to experience the sounds that I am going to use to create the structure of the song, that is very pleasant and also when the final projects arrive after mastering, since there is a third party who works with me on the mastering.
