Gears and software
What gears/software did you use for Nemesis ?I make everything in FL Studio, and record samples and vocals in Audacity. For synths I use a lot of Sytrus, Harmor/Harmless, Toxic Biohazard, GMS (all included with FL Studio), and Dexed which is a software recreation of the DX7. I'm not really that big in to hardware just because I can't really afford it right now, so all I use is a Panda Mini USB midi keyboard, a Blue Snowball USB microphone, and then just my PC.
Any evolution in your setup ?My setup really hasn't changed in the last 3 or so years to be honest, although I want to expand especially with hardware synths and things like that.
Do you use/tweak presets ?I use lots of presets for synths especially, both ones that are pre-installed and also ones that I've made. I usually don't just use them as-is though, but it saves some time if I want to make a particular sound and I know I already have something similar I can start with.
Do you design you own sound ? On which synth/plugin in particular ?
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 ? ...
Do you produce/mix in the box or do you use mainly external gears (effect/comp/eq...) ?I mix everything gradually as I'm making it in the DAW. Mastering isn't really a separate step either, I just use the same master preset I've used since mid 2019 (although I might start experimenting with different methods for the next album).
What is your most painful / enjoyable step in track production ? Sound design, arrangement, mixing, mastering ?
The most frustrating step for me is listening on speakers, because EQ usually affects that much more than in headphones.
